In Activities, Projects

We have been working in partnership with Big Creative Training in East London, to offer international work placements in Prague and Crete.

Digital Media students  at BCT directed and produced this video to showcase their work placements in Crete.

Over the past two years, Volunteer International has been collaborating with Big Creative Education to offer international placements to Digital Media and Games Design students. 

The international work placements have provided 100 BCT students with valuable life experience and have the potential to become an important and highly valued element of the BCT learner experience.

Erik Balchunas, Games Design student at the College explained his motivation;
I wanted to experience what it’s like to work in the games industry.  We got to talk to a ROBLOX engine developer. We had the chance to develop a little application which utilised AR. We created 3D models which we then 3D printed.
Emily Selwanes, Digital Media student, described some of the transferable skills she developed..
As well as learning how to work independently, I developed skills such as problem-solving and project management. I have gained confidence when meeting new people and networking.
Students had a chance to explore new destinations and cultures.
Crete was incredible and I was given the chance to experience a lifestyle unlike my own. The pride that people in Crete have about their country is inspiring. They really made me feel at home.
Gabriel da Silva, Games Design student, described the benefits of the placements for his future career plans..
Nowadays, employers are looking for people with the most experience possible, not just a diploma. Doing work experience in another country helps you to stand out from the crowd.
