The Scottish Social Services Awards has created a partnership with Edinburgh College, City of Glasgow College, North East Scotland College and Dumfries & Galloway College to provide filming support for the finalists.
Students from these four colleges will work with shortlisted organisations to produce a short promotional film which tells the story of their award submission. The films are up to one minute long for use at the ceremony and on social media.
We would like to thank the students from Edinburgh College and the City of Glasgow College who helped produce the films for the 2017 Scottish Social Services Awards. You can view their fantastic work on our Vimeo and YouTube Channels.
“Our students gained a valuable insight into the social supportive and inspirational work carried out in our communities. It is important for them to realise that broadcast can be a force for good and projects such as this one are valuable for their working future.” Marjory Crooks, Curriculum Manager, Broadcast Media & Photography, Edinburgh College
“It was a pleasure supporting the 2017 Scottish Social Services Awards. Our TV students worked with some really interesting individuals and organisations and used the production skills they had acquired to tell truly inspirational stories.” James Wilson, Curriculum Head: Industry Academy and Youth Employability, Glasgow College
“This is most definitely the best way to develop your skills, work with clients and manage real deadlines. The added bonus was knowing that you are supporting people and organisations who do a fantastic job.” Tom Duda, student of Edinburgh College
“It was a pleasure to work with so many fantastic and diverse organisations. Managing the whole filming process, from the understanding of the campaign to the final edit, gave me a real boost and it was exciting to see my work on the big screen at the ceremony.” Gav Young, student of Edinburgh College
