Bea Monteiro

Professional Technical & Production Student

"Being a student at The National College is great. We have a lot of opportunities to meet people from the industry."

Bea Monteiro, who is studying for a Level 4 Diploma in Technical and Production for the Creative Industries, moved from Brazil to study at the National College Creative Industries in order to obtain the skills for her dream career in production management.

The course helps students to acquire technical skills and knowledge in electronics, installation, technical service, computer-aided design and visualisation, business development, client management, business operations and finance, rigging and control systems design and management, alongside gaining experience of site and project management.

“My favourite project was the making of an MP4 music video. It allowed me to show what I could do and show what I love to do – manage production. It was also the most challenging project.

“I want to become a production manager, but I know I have a journey to get there, so starting my career as a production assistant after the course would be great.”

Speaking of the facilities available to students at the National College Creative Industries, Bea said The Backstage Centre was her favourite. The centre is a world class production venue in which students can gain hands-on training and real-time experience with some of the world’s best bands and theatre companies, as the venue is available for hire.

Artists that have used The Backstage Centre’s state of the art facilities include Ellie Goulding, Bastille, Rod Stewart, Disclosure, Derren Brown and Years & Years.

“The Backstage Centre is a great place. The sound stage is amazing, and the rooms are big enough to accommodate students and professionals,” Bea said.
