Teaches: Content Creation for Social Media, 2D Animation and Podcast

My name is Owen and I’ve been working in the creative industries as a content creator and Visual Effects artist for short films, documentaries and YouTube videos for over 7 years. I’m currently producing social media videos and podcasts for a number of charities. A tutor on the Apprenticeships and AEB courses, I enjoy teaching and the opportunity to work with students to develop their creative ideas.

The Media courses are great; extremely in depth and gives a great understanding of the overall subject. It also provides you with opportunities within the industry. The atmosphere is extremely welcoming and it is very easy to fit into, especially for new students. I would recommend to anyone looking for a great, creative place.

I’m a student currently studying here and I’m enjoying the digital media course that I have picked to study here. I didn’t have any previous experience of media before I came here and since I have joined I’ve managed to learn a lot of new things.

What a fantastic experience! I thoroughly enjoyed the Digital Advertising course in September 2021, lectured by Trevor. I have learned so much in just over a period of 4 weeks. Trevor ensured that I understood each lesson and had regular "check-in" with each of us as students. Trevor attended to each students request/needs and had remarkable patience by repeating the lesson or something that the students might not understand. He always supported our student group with friendliness and professionalism. It is hard in the job market and can feel very isolated. However everyone at the college has made me feel part of something unique and special! THANK YOU BCA TEAM! I can't wait for the next course. What an incredible online learning experience through ZOOM.

So happy I've chosen this place and had amazing results with the help of the most dedicated and talented tutors! Great place to learn new skills and break into the creative industry. I've learned so much during the Digital Marketing course with Matt HUGHES that I could actualy become competitive in the industry and secure a job during the lockdown. Content Creation with Mikis MICHAELIDES has led to creating a Music Video from scratch over 6 weeks and learning the basics of Creative Cloud - and the WEB design course with Adrian Joseph helped me with creating my own website. So grateful !!!

I didn't know what to expect from the Marketing course but Matt Hughes, our tutor, exceed all my expectations as kept us all engaged throughout the lessons by sharing with us his extensive knowledge and how to be applied to both our careers and businesses, thank you.

I just finished the Digital Marketing Course. Our lecturer, Matt, was really clear when explaining the topics and very patient too. You can definitely tell that he is dedicated and passionate to the field. Great experience, suggested to whoever wants to increase his knowledge about the field. It is quite hard to find other free courses that give the same services.

Have recently taken three different courses to help me retrain and gain work after becoming redundant. BCE is a great charity that offers fully free courses for unemployed adults, all currently delivered on Zoom 2-3 times a week over between 3-6 weeks. I have taken the Graphic Design, Digital Marketing and 2D Animation courses and on all I have learnt a lot with excellent tutors who are experts in their fields. Would highly recommend!
