Media and Film students were invited this week to a careers conference. We invited speakers who work in various areas of the media to come in and share the story of their journey from college student to industry professional.

We had some fabulous people: the deputy editor of Newsround; a production coordinator; the Sharp Futures social enterprise, and The University of Sunderland. The morning proved incredibly useful and students were also able to speak to our guests at the end to ask further questions. The overall message from each speaker was: commitment, enthusiasm and motivation – skills useful in every aspect of college as well. All the speakers have since been in touch to say how impressed they were with our students and how much they enjoyed their experience – a great event all round!
