Our Level 3 BTEC students studying our Journalism Course have recently conducted a series of interviews with prominent figures from the Nottingham community.
The interviews took place in our industry standard TV studio, where the students had the opportunity to engage with and question their subjects on camera. Each student spent 20 minutes interviewing the guests about their experiences, achievements, and personal journeys.
There were multiple individuals who were interviewed, such as, Robin Hood, better known as actor Adam Greenwood, and Owain, a member of the rock band Panchiko, who gained viral fame for a record released over two decades ago.
Additionally, the Former Lord Mayor of Nottingham, Wendy Smith, Slam Poet World Champion Cara Thompson, and Nottingham Panthers’ player Zaine Mckenzie also shared insights into their life and careers.
This project allowed students to gain hands on experience by asking thought-provoking questions and showcases the creativity of our BTEC Level 3 Journalism Course here at Nottingham College.
Well done to all students who participated in this event!
I think it is crucial that students get real-world experience when it comes to journalism, and taking them out of the classroom and into our state- of-the-art studio and gallery. I also believe bringing in guests for them to interview doesn’t just give them a subject to practice on, but introduces them to the people and projects that make this city such an exciting, vibrant place — and of course, to show our interviewees what bright, ambitious students we have.Matt Turpin — Media Industries Lecturer
