Reclaim Photography Festival is pleased to announce a partnership with Sandwell College to deliver our work experience programme for RPF17 Reclaiming Our Cultural Landscapes.

Our work experience programme includes opportunities to develop both transferrable and specialist professional creative and photographic skills. The programme includes working with the Festival organisers, partner galleries and venues, and in support of our sponsors, supporters and Festival. The roles include: team leaders, curators, press photographers, digital media and graphic designers, workshop assistants, invigilators and general stewarding roles.

Sandwell College is a landmark for the development of education and training in the Black Country and Birmingham. Our iconic, £77 million Central Campus towers over the centre of West Bromwich and attracts students from across the region, with young people on our more specialist programmes coming from far afield. Just the other side of town, Central Sixth, our new and heavily subscribed A Level Centre, is making an equally impressive impact. Housed in an extraordinary, post-modernist building next to a major retail development, Central Sixth is already forging a reputation for sending young people to strong university courses.

The majority of our full-time students are aged 16-18, studying courses designed to give them skills for the modern workplace.  Many of our vocational courses for school leavers have 100% pass rates, while a very high proportion of our A Level students get straight into university. We also welcome thousands of adult learners on to an extremely wide variety of full time, part time and short courses. These range from Entry Level tasters to Foundation Degrees, Level 5 vocational programmes and Continuing Professional Development courses.
Our state-of-the-art Central Campus includes an array of photography and fashion studios, and a 170-seater theatre.
