Just off Ladbroke Grove, behind a small office at 16 Telford Road, is the wonderful Video College. The Video College is a local charity set up through the Wornington Green Residents’ Association in 1994. Its aim is to encourage people of all ages to discover and develop their skills in video production. They target young people at risk and provide free, high-quality, production-based video training for people traditionally under-represented in the film and television industries. Courses are aimed at unemployed adults, or those on low incomes and black and minority ethnic communities.
The Video College has all the equipment necessary to produce video programmes, including digital cameras, sound recording and lighting kits and Final Cut Pro editing suites. The Video College works with tutors who have experience of broadcast programme-making, education and training, career development and industry placements, the arts, youth and community work.
Tutors ensure young people and trainees benefit from hands-on industry standard training. The Video College is able to offer progression routes so that young people and adults can develop both video skills and the core skills that they need to get on at school or to move into work, further education or training.
If you are interested in video production and would like to get involved, please look at The Video College website for details of any upcoming courses: www.thevideocollege.co.uk. You can contact The Video College on 020 8964 2641 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
