The Video College

The Video College provides free, high-quality, production-based video training with a strong drama element. It also has a broader educational brief, which ranges from encouraging critical appreciation of film and television to attending to individuals’ basic skills and particular needs. Our programme offers progression routes which enable young people and adults to develop both video skills and the core skills that they need to achieve at school or to move into work, further education or training.

We work with those traditionally under-represented in the media: young people at risk; those who are missing out, or have missed out, on mainstream education; adults who are unemployed or on low incomes; all local communities, particularly minority communities. Screenings at cinemas and community venues, and distribution through festivals give voice to the opinions of students of all ages.
