Students are at the centre of everything we do.

Shift Media is an independent training provider working within the Creative and Cultural Industries. Based in the Workstation, a hub of media companies and activity, our aim is to help student’s progress to where they want to be.

Often students may have an interest in creative subjects but not have a clear idea about their future pathway into further education; apprenticeship or employment.

We work with students using personalised learning and regular review stages. We work together with students to come up with a plan for developing their future and then we support and encourage them to monitor and track that plan. Putting the power over their future into their hands, they are able to keep track of where they are on the path to achieve their aims.

Our Mission

We provide an aspirational environment in which we help students gain confidence and develop at their own pace. Our core aim is to help students engage with learning in a fun, focused and disciplined way. Shift Media encourage personal growth, attainment and an enjoyment of learning.
Our aim is to nurture our values in students, staff, trustees and volunteers:

  • Kindness
  • Resilience
  • Self-discipline
  • Honesty
  • Courage
  • … and a general joy in life.

Every student has individual talents and distinct needs in relation to learning. Success in learning comes from being stretched and challenged in an enjoyable, engaging way. Shift Media aims to help students develop their talent by recognising their individual learning styles within the context of structured learning and skills development.

All staff are appropriately qualified in the vocational area they teach and in educational theory. We promote the highest standards of learning.
