Media student Kevin Ford
Kevin Ford came to college to study for his Level 3 Media qualification after not enjoying his A Levels at school.
The 20-year-old said: “I prefer the more practical to the academic and didn’t do too well in my A levels. I decided to come to college to learn the broader aspects of the media industry and chose this college because it seemed to have the best facilities and reviews.
“The course is great and the tutors are laid back but know how to get work out of you. It’s more relaxed than at school and they trust you to get on with the work. There is also the opportunity to get real industry experience – I have helped film a gig at the Slade Rooms.
“I’m really glad I chose to come here. It has opened my eyes to what I can do as a career.”
