boomsatsuma Film & TV Diploma

Since 2018, our education partners boomsatsuma have delivered a Film & Television Diploma based in their classroom on site here at the Studios.

Open to 16-19 year olds, this OCR Cambridge Technicals Extended Diploma is a nationally recognised qualification equivalent to 3 A Levels and worth up to 168 UCAS tariff points.

20 spaces are available on this course each year, and we particularly encourage applications from young people local to us in South Bristol.

The course offers hands on education and training across filmmaking, TV production, lighting, photography, events management, animation graphic design, production design and sound design.

Students are taught curriculum-facing projects in classrooms on site and are able to access extra opportunities arising from being based in an active TV and film facility.

These opportunities include work placements on productions, behind the scenes set tours, use of facilities and runner positions.
