Does anybody have any experience in college courses? I was wondering if an NCFE would look good on a cv in trying to get work? Whats the best type of course to go for?

Many thanks,
Peter Turner

Hi Peter,
I did the NCFE course at night school in 2000, back in those days it was all film work. But I will say I enjoyed every minute of the 12 months course. When the course finished the tutor put me forward to do a full time ND course, which was over 2 years, with some digital work and again I loved every minute. So all I can say is to check what the course offers and if it looks right for you go for it.

What actually is it though? Is it a degree or just a fancy name for learning something that does exactly that, just teach you rather than give you a qualification on your cv?

As a general rule any qualifications in photography will be valueless if you are aiming to be a freelance photographer. It is possible they may be of some use if you are seeking a position as a salaried photographer. But qualifications awarded by (e.g.) the RPS and the BIPP are more likely to be regarded as relevant.
