    Danielle - Level 3 Media

    Danielle said: “The media studio and the facilities were excellent, the tutors were amazing, they have backgrounds in media and knew first-hand what it was like in the business. You get the hands on experience needed to help you progress; we created our own films and it prepared us to go out and get a job, or go on to higher education.”
