A-Level Media students from Pembrokeshire College recently travelled to Disneyland Paris for the annual Media Live! Conference, where they listened to inspirational talks from industry leaders.
Through a series of interactive presentations, the three-day excursion sought to fire learners future career ambitions by broadening their understanding of the media industry and the many different career paths available to them within this exciting and expanding sector.
Guest speakers for the event included: Maddie Moate, TV Presenter and YouTube Filmmaker; Naomi Sesay, On-Screen Diversity Executive with Channel 4; as well as executives from the Disney Marketing Team.
Pembrokeshire College Media Lecturer, Andrea Hughes, accompanied the students and commented: “The Media Live! Conference has become an annual event for our A-level media students as it provides them with an invaluable first-hand experience of the media industry in practice. It offers a once in a lifetime opportunity to engage with top industry leaders and provides a perfect accompaniment to the A-Level curriculum, supporting the student’s learning in the classroom.”
