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.

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.
