We are also a partner institution of Screen Yorkshire’s ground-breaking Connected Campus initiative that forges closer links between TV and Film professionals, production companies, broadcasters and the students trying to break into this competitive industry. By fostering stronger relationships between employers and educators, Connected Campus ensures that students on a variety of vocational Film and TV-related courses are fully equipped for the demands of a contemporary, rapidly-changing industry – and that the region’s workforce is the most talented, versatile and best-prepared in the UK.

All students at partner institutions can access a range of industry bootcamps, masterclasses and special events, including visits to current sets and studios, industry workshops, visiting speakers and reviews of project pitches. The colleges also have access to the specialist knowledge and expertise of Screen Yorkshire’s skills and training department, that have more than 40 years of industry experience between them.
