STUDENTS at Nelson and Colne College Sixth Form have visited local community TV and corporate video company PLTV to gain an insight into working media productions.

During the visit the students learnt about community TV, toured the full broadcast facilities and studio sets and found out about the range of work experience in the PLTV studios.

Peter Macgregor, the managing director at PLTV News, said: “We were delighted to host a visit of fifteen students from Nelson and Colne College.

“The college has been very proactive and we would encourage more local businesses to meet their students.

“Media students have a wealth of ideas and PLTV News is very keen to tap into their ideas through our student work experience programme.”
