My colleague Andrew McGlen sent me this which I have taken from the CLC website...
'The City Learning Centres were approached to make a short film for the Pacific institute to document their work with Education Leeds over the years and show how their training courses had changed communities in Leeds for the better.
Working with Chris Bennet and Val Cain of Education Leeds and Joe Askew of The Pacific Institute, Chris Boylan produced the 10 minute film. The video is now being used worldwide to showcase the partnerships successes.
“Our organisation, The Pacific Institute, recently worked with Chris Boylan of the Derek Fatchett City Learning Centre to produce a video testimonial of the work we have been doing with parents in Leeds for the last 10 years through Education Leeds. From the initial contact and supply of a brief of what we wanted to completion of the project, we found working with Chris and the CLC an absolute pleasure. The product we received was of exceptional quality and truly captured the spirit of the initial request. Chris displayed an innate understanding of what we were looking for and really went the extra mile to ensure the video was not merely a display of a series of talking heads, but instead was a distillation of the human stories we were hoping to show. We have had a fantastic response to the video when we have shown it to clients, both existing and prospective, and from international colleagues as well. Our thanks to Chris and the CLC for a fantastic effort.” Joe Askew: The Pacific Institute'
