Covid Update

On Tuesday 29 March, the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, Sajid Javid, set out the next steps for living with COVID-19 in England from Friday 1 April.

Updated guidance advises:

  • Adults with the symptoms of a respiratory infection, and who have a high temperature or feel unwell, should try to stay at home and avoid contact with other people until they feel well enough to resume normal activities and no longer have a high temperature.
  • Children and young people who are unwell and have a high temperature should stay at home and avoid contact with other people. They can return to college when they no longer have a high temperature, and are well enough to attend.
  • Adults with a positive COVID-19 test result should try to stay at home and avoid contact with other people for 5 days, which is when they are most infectious. For children and young people aged 18 and under, the advice is 3 days.

For education and childcare settings from Friday 1 April:

  • Regular asymptomatic testing is no longer recommended in any education or childcare setting, including in SEND, alternative provision and children’s social care settings. Therefore, we will no longer be able to order test kits .

Summary

This vocational course is focused on helping you to develop a range of skills to serve the dynamic and fast-moving animation and VFX sector within the creative media industries, as well as giving you knowledge and understanding of the range of potential career paths that you could pursue upon graduation.

There is a strong focus on industry practice and learning how the animation and VFX industry works in the UK. You will be taught by former specialists in the field, including ex-Aardman employees, which will enhance your opportunities to learn about the possible career paths and the skills needed as a practitioner in the different areas.

This Level 3 course is based at our dynamic and exciting WISE Campus, located within easy reach of the city of Bristol and moments away from Bristol Parkway and Bristol Abbey Wood train stations.

What do I need to join?

Five GCSEs at grade 4 (C) or above, including English and Maths. Mature applicants will be considered based on their individual merit. All applicants need to bring a portfolio of creative work to their interview and must successfully complete a college taster day.

Previous work

Maths & English

A key requirement for obtaining many jobs is to achieve a good standard of English and maths. Therefore, learners that do not yet have a GCSE grade 4 (C) in these subjects will be enrolled on either a GCSE or Functional Skills course alongside their main study programme.

Work Experience

All students complete a work placement each year; in the first year, you will work with others to produce a media product for a client, and in the second year, you will negotiate your own placement or participate in a selection process for placements with local media employers.

What can I do next?

It is expected that students from this course will be suitably prepared for entry-level employment within the creative industries, though most will progress onto the BA (Hons) Degree in Animation and/or VFX and move into working life from there.
