Official Partnerships

We are proud to be official partners with Teesside University, Gateshead College and Collingwood School & Media Centre.

Our key aim is to keep talent and skills in the North East, as we promote and provide opportunities to students through real world experience, offering feedback on their work and demonstrating the opportunities that are available to them here in the North-East.

Signpost Productions will work with staff and students from the University’s School of Computing, Engineering & Digital Technologies and School of Arts & Creative Industries on a range of collaborative opportunities.

These include:

  • Working together to design and deliver new degree modules.

  • Providing guest lectures and masterclasses.
  • Exploring collaborative research opportunities.
  • Supporting diversity and inclusion within the University.

“This partnership will help to bridge the gap between industry and education. It will really open doors to our students offering them the opportunity to work directly on real projects with a professional broadcaster.”
