The places for these workshops are now full and we are waiting for additional funding – 


 A practical 2 hour workshop for up to 15 students led by a broadcast professional,
eg Rob Tygner animator of the “Compare the market” Meerkat
• A 45 minute presentation to a larger group with excerpts of current TV work and careers advice.

The aim of this series of workshops is to help your students understand how they might enter the video effects industry and what education and training choices they should be considering now and when they leave school. We also want to help students understand the concept of skills fusion that is developing of
a range of skills that include science, technology, engineering, maths and art.

The workshop will run over a double lesson and be led by the industry professional and two other staff. They will help the young people create some high quality special effects and we
will provide all the equipment.

The presentation will last for 45 minutes and be aimed at 50-200 young people. The industry professional will talk about their current broadcast work, their career path and show excerpts and clips, there will also be a section on what choices the young people need to think about and where to look for further advice.

At the end we will show the students the work produced in the practical workshop. Each student will receive a free advice pack summarising the session.

A key part of this project will be your school’s ability to cascade this information to other schools and we would expect careers advice and media staff from other schools to be involved in the project, this could be attending the presentation or subsequent briefing sessions.

The workshop is free however there are only a limited number of places that will be allocated on a first come first served basis. The workshops should run before Christmas 2013
