If you would like a career in media, then we are arguably one of the best places in the country to kick start it.


We are one of just twenty Founder Colleges of the National Skills Academy, Creative and Cultural’s network – recognition of the quality and specialism of our Creative Industries training and facilities. Last year, 86% of our students went onto further study and 7% progressed directly into employment.

As further proof of our innovation in the field of media, we are the first College in the country to offer an advanced apprenticeship in creative & digital media.

The brilliant VFX and Animation course has been designed to meet the needs of students who want to work in the field of animation, visual effects, modelling and design for films and games. We utilise the very latest technology available to the media industry including a professional Mo Cap supplied by Centroid Motion Capture and a versatile Green Screen Studio.  We pride ourselves on our industry links and have developed the Centroid Motion Capture Academy where student will learn industry techniques from professionals.

Our TV and Film course is also very popular and the Level 3 course will help you decide what area of the television and film industry might be best suited to you.

Every year, as part of the End of Year Show, the TV and Film students broadcast live on You Tube – check out the latest footage here.

Student stories

Joseph Shirley


“My friends recommended this course to me and it delivers exactly what I was looking for in animation, film and games development. The software we use is to industry standard and the tutors are passionate and engaging. A team of us competed in the World Skills event in London last year in the animation and games sector. It was a great experience and we had to complete 3D modelling within a specific time frame which really got you focused. You learn a lot about how to succeed in this field and the college has some great industry links which will be really useful when I leave.”
