For those who have a passion for the creative arts, there are numerous opportunities to enhance your skills, be inspired and prepare for a successful career in the industry. We offer students the unique opportunity to work on project briefs given by real clients across the creative disciplines.
We have an in-house production team, ‘F6 Productions’, who create media products for local clients, an invaluable experience which helps to prepare students for life after college in this incredibly competitive sector. ‘F6 Productions’ have made promotional videos for local companies and organisations, including Hydrolife, Makaton and Happiful Magazine.
Photography students often provide the photography for local charity and community events, enabling them to build up a portfolio of work to present to universities and employers. Their work is also displayed in venues across the local area.
Our graphic design students regularly attend workshops and talks from well-known illustrators and designers, as well as former College students who have progressed into a graphic design career or a creative course at university.
In 2019, the College held its inaugural ‘Creative Kickstart’ event, three weeks of talks and presentations delivered by specialist speakers, giving students a direct insight into the range of job roles and progression routes within the areas of graphic design, film, media, architecture, journalism and photography. In the summer, the creative arts departments come together for the annual Art Exhibition and Fashion Show which showcases and celebrates the amazing work that students have produced.
