Course Overview

Share your passion through YouTube, whether it’s sketching, photography or reviews. Our specialist tutors will show you how to create unique content for your YouTube channel and teach you how to create stories that drive engagement and boost your following.

You will storyboard, script, film yourself or your screen, discover the YouTube video editing tools and work  to publish eye-catching content.

By the end of the course, students will have their own YouTube channel with original content and the tools to keep creating!

(Please note for students wishing to make a Gaming channel, time spent filming themselves playing games will be kept to a minimum to avoid distraction from the key learning outcomes of the course, and they will also be required to create other content).

"Before camp, I was nervous because I wasn't sure what to expect, but the groups are small and that's helpful. And the tutors are extremely helpful"
