How SFC will help you to boost your CV by developing your skills and qualifications…

You will learn and develop skills through the use of industry standard software and facilities, preparing you for both higher education and employment. You will study aspects of professional practice within the Media Production industry as part of the course. This will have a full understanding of the different job roles available to you in the film and TV industries, which could support you gaining employment at a junior level directly from College.

The majority of your projects will be live briefs allowing you to speak directly to a client whilst exploring aspects of the Production process.

All projects and assignments will focus on developing your own individual skills giving you the greatest opportunity to gain employability skills including:

  • Creativity
  • Time management
  • Communication skills
  • Organisational skills

Additional activities such as trips, visits and guest speakers will be arranged throughout the course. These will be project and progression focused. These are optional activities and fees will be charged. Details will be available from the course leader.

industry placement

Industry placement is a mandatory part of the T Level course and full certification of the T Level will not be possible without completing the industry placement. The industry placement is substantially longer than the traditional work experience and so should be significantly beneficial to you and the employer. You are expected to gain substantial technical training as required through your industry placement.
