Work Experience with amazing industry links

.

For an example of our industry links check out our 6th form TV & film prouction "'Wake up with Dixon' starring Stephen Dixon, Sky News.

As part of our 6th form curriculum students will have the opportunity to have a work placement for 1 day a week. We work closely with our industry partners to ensure students get invaluable experience from their placements. Work experience gives students transferable skills and knowledge which help them when applying for jobs or universities. 

Our students have completed work experience with the BBC, Dyson, Somer Valley FM, Complete Control (production studios), Ideal Films and many local media companies. They have also had the opportunity to carry out industry projects which have included making new websites for companies, creating marketing material and attending opening days and guest seminars to help build their knowledge of different industries. 

 

 


KATIE STYLES - HIBBERT HARWOOD 


 

"During my placement at Hibbert Harwood I have gained employability skills by shadowing the people I work with and developing the skills I learn within the Bath Studio School but use these towards a company or client. I have also learned more within software like Photoshop and using social media platforms and how to determine how a client wants to promote their products and the language they use within their social media to target an audience. I have thought about my time management and being trusted to complete real projects for clients.

This whole experience at Hibbert Harwood has allowed me to gather more transferable skills which can be used in the future as they all help towards any sector I want to work in."

 


 DAVID LUBINSKI -  CURO (IT SUPPORT)


 

"During the past year my placement has been with Curo. The department that I work in, is the IT department. We specialise in keeping employee’s computers in check and making sure that Curo’s client’s profiles are always up to date. I’ve learnt how to develop a website, using C++ and Java, through this I’ve modified the description within the text and the colour on the website. As well as this I’ve learnt how to work as part of a team and how to discuss ideas on how to move forward in the department.

I think Curo is a great company that’s allowed me to develop different skills and knowledge. I’m proud to say that throughout the past year the experience I’ve gained from Curo has been amazing."

 


 HARRY LISNEY - BIC – VIDEO EDITOR


 

 "For my work placement I provide video editing service for the locally based football training company BIC. I help them by editing videos of previous matches for their head of video & media support.

He has given me videos of previous matches of students he coaches, I then am to edit them to a standard that replicates a professionally edited video. This helps me because I can then use my finished products and use them as evidence for my editing coursework. Another way this benefits me is that through editing these videos I then improve my skills in editing and helps me become a more favourable candidate for any video production companies."
