Student and staff safety remains our top priority.

Sheffield College media make-up students have discovered the secrets behind special effects prosthetics with a leading industry expert.
Award-winning practitioner Neill Gorton works on shows including Dr Who, Catherine Tate, Bodies and Being Human, and recently delivered a masterclass to students on prosthetic facial appliances.
Neill shared advice on the skills that special effects and film industry employers are looking for and the different careers available, as well as demonstrating special effects techniques.
Student Sheldon Marsden, 23 said: “I loved it. It was a real eye opener, and fascinating seeing Neill demonstrate industry techniques. Neill gave some great advice about the different career opportunities for special effects artists, mold makers and sculptors. The College course has been brilliant, and I want to continue my training to get into the industry.”
Students including those completing the VTCT Level 3 Diploma in Theatrical, Special Effects and Hair and Media Makeup attended the workshop held at The Sheffield College City campus, Granville Road, as well as some staff.
Heather Smith, Principal, The Sheffield College, said: “Working with industry experts helps our students get the latest tips and skills they need to get onto the career ladder.”
