Gogglebox TV star Baasit Siddiqui visited Nottingham College to work with more than 30 TV and Film Production students recently.

Baa­sit is Direc­tor of Sid­diqui Edu­ca­tion Ltd, and he spent the day get­ting stu­dents to think about what it takes to plan and pitch a TV show or media concept.

The stu­dents spent the day gen­er­at­ing ideas of their own and get­ting tips from Baa­sit. He took them through the whole process from idea to pitch, which gave them insight into a career in the media. 

The Let’s Pitch It work­shop also gave the stu­dents chance to prac­tise valu­able skills for work, includ­ing plan­ning, team­work and pre­sent­ing to an audience.

The stu­dents did them­selves and the Col­lege proud. They had some fab ideas and great ener­gy – some of the ideas were very unique. 

 — Baa­sit Siddiqui

Jon Laud, Head of Fac­ul­ty for Cre­ative Arts at Not­ting­ham Col­lege, said: We are always work­ing to give our stu­dents up-to-date indus­try insight on their cours­es, to best pre­pare them and give them an edge. So we were delight­ed to wel­come Baa­sit to the Col­lege for this engag­ing prac­ti­cal session. 

We look for­ward to see­ing if any of their ideas go on to become the next must-watch show!”

The vis­it was organ­ised by DAN­COP, the Der­byshire and Not­ting­hamshire Col­lab­o­ra­tive Out­reach Programme. 

DAN­COP is a part­ner­ship of uni­ver­si­ties and col­leges work­ing togeth­er to raise the aspi­ra­tions of young peo­ple and sup­port them to con­sid­er their futures, as part of a nation­al gov­ern­ment ini­tia­tive to increase the num­ber of young peo­ple from under­rep­re­sent­ed groups who go into high­er education.
