Lesley Lister, Co-Founder of the Diploma and Managing Director of Tyne Tees Models, said, “This diploma is the first qualification of its type and has been created to give young people practical advice and experience in this exciting industry. It’s a fun course but will really equip students with practical skills and hands-on experience.”

The year-long diploma covers seven exciting units including:

You don’t have to have a strong academic background to sign up to the diploma, just bags of enthusiasm and a willingness to try something new.”
