Weston College media students created their own film.


Weston College media students showcased the importance of having strong maths and English skills by creating a film called Tools For Life.

The students approached a number of businesses and the college’s principal to show their views on how maths and English are key to day-to-day responsibilities in the workplace.

A number of short interviews with St Monica Trust care homes, Aardman Animations and Wessex Water all made the final cut.

Ian Drury, head of communications at Wessex Water, said: “The film provided us with an opportunity to highlight how important it is to have these vital skills for engineering roles.

“We hope the interview with one of our employees will also encourage more people to consider applying for one of our apprenticeship schemes which offer excellent opportunities.”
