• The Award for FE Team of the Year
  • Northern Regional College
  • Co. Antrim, Northern Ireland

This team works at the College’s Ballymoney campus. Former students have gone on to work for Channel 4, ITV, the BBC and Saatchi & Saatchi.

This is largely due to the learning and motivation students receive from this team – all of whom have worked or are still working in the media. They run five full-time courses with approximately 150 students at any one time.

Most courses have an 80% progression rate of students on to university. The attitude of the team is that just because you’re from rural Northern Ireland, doesn’t mean to say you can`t work in the Creative Industries – so a lot of their approach is about confidence-building, and incorporating practical experience into everything they do. Add this to the huge bond they have with the students, and the student experience is second to none.
