We had a great day’s filming yesterday at Strode College in Somerset.
Despite the rain, our first day with the marketing team gathering material for the college’s new promotional DVD and web video was inspiring.
I challenge anyone to walk into any FE college and, after spending a bit of time with the students, not to feel the vibe.
I know it sounds corny but the buzz and creativity oozing out of our 16-18 year olds is amazing; it should remind us how important creating a space for young people to learn the techniques of design, digital technology, pure & applied art etc. is so important for the UK’s success in the future.
We filmed the students doing lots of great stuff including the nitty gritty of machine engineering, music technology and building computers, as well as painting, music, acting and dance.
And we’ll be back for more of the same in a couple of weeks.
