Hexham VJ Project

Providing VJ skills for Queen Elizabeth High School.

Who Took Part

A small group of students and teachers at Queen Elizabeth High School took part.


  • to use new media to create projects which consolidated learning in the English Language Curriculum
  • train the teachers so they were able to support future classes to do VJ workshops.

Project Outline

The project took place over two days.

What Happened

We provided a daylong train the trainer workshop for teachers and support staff in VJ skills using our library of clips. Trainees learned the skills involved in successful VJing and some of the technical tips to help them support students when they were using VJ software.

Then we delivered a tailored workshop with English Language students helping them devlop VJ sets for their areas of study in the Persuasive Writing element of their course. They filmed clips which could represent the issues they’d chosen, for example - knife crime.


Each student produced a live VJ set to a music track by the end of the day, performed in front of the other trainees.

Sharing The Results With Others

The staff intended to cascade the skills to other students at the school.

Benefits for Participants

The groups had the opportunity to work in small production teams, developed new media skills, using cutting edge technology, consolidated their learning and had the added thrill of doing a live performance.
