Students help raise the profile of local organisations
Media students from the College of Haringey, Enfield and North East London have been working with local organisations to raise their profile within the community.
Three organisations, Bruce Castle Museum, The University of Third Age and Higher Heights agreed for Level 3 Media Production students to produce a promotional video, website and leaflets for their organisation.
After months of liaising, filming and gathering information, students working with University of Third Age were ready to present their work, inviting staff in to the College to view the finished products.
Kadeem Roberts-Findlay, Fils Wetshi and Nakus Gomes delivered a 20 minute presentation which incorporated a proposed website, promotional film and leaflet.
Staff from the University of Third Age, an organisations that provides courses for those in retirement, were delighted with the finished results, with Ernest Nunes commenting: “We are very happy with the effort the boys have put into the work, and we look forward to incorporating it into our existing material. We appreciate their support in helping us promote our courses to people in the community, and I wish them luck in their future endeavours.”
Student Nakus said: “This project has been a great experience. It’s prepared us for working with clients and has been a valuable learning experience, especially knowing how to make all three elements cohesive.”
The project is one example of how the College works with the employers and the local community to enhance learners’ experience.
Tutor, Sharon Wallace, said: “This has been an exciting project for the students and they have produced some very good work to a professional standard, which they should be proud of.”
