Film & TV Department Alumni Joins BBC

stewart_campbell_2016A student from our HNC Film & Television course has beaten over 1300 applicants to gain a BBC Scotland apprenticeship. Stewart Campbell  is one of only ten people selected for the year-long apprenticeship, based at Glasgow’s Pacific Quay. Stewart attended an assessment day and interview in May before being told he had been selected, and his success is made all the more impressive by the fact that he is severely-to-profoundly deaf. Stewart said:

“I always enjoyed visual media, I did a pathways course at the College in 2013 and visited the BBC as part of work experience with the Deaf Children’s Society NDCS. That’s what made me realise that it’s something I really wanted to do as a career.”

Stewart progressed from the Pathways course through an NC and onto our HNC Film and Television course. From September, Stewart will have the chance to work with BBC professionals on Radio, TV and Online content across a range of departments, such as Sport, Children’s, Learning and News and said

“I’m really looking forward to the whole experience and not just one particular area, for me, I see it as an exciting challenge that I know I can do well in.”

Film & Television Lecturer, Alan Moffat, said:

“As well as being one of the hardest working students to come through the HNC Television course, Stewart possesses qualities which will help him to do well in the workplace. His attitude towards his coursework, as well as his ability to meet every deadline you set, makes him a great student to teach. He is passionate about Television and thankfully the BBC have seen this. He’s stated that he wishes to come back at some point and finish his HND but I’ve told him the only time we ever want to see him back at college is when he comes in talk to our future students about the TV programmes he is working on.”
