Meet Richard Coote, our talented Videographer! 

Richard works in the Marketing Team at Middlesbrough College, capturing every corner, story, and detail of our vibrant campus with his lens. He has mastered creating cinematic narratives that showcase the College’s brilliant staff and students, framing each department and event with a keen eye for detail and artistic touch. 

Richard first joined the college as an Apprentice in November 2020 as a Junior Content Producer within the Digital Innovation Team. During this time, Richard enjoyed taking on various projects, from photography and videography to creating interactive course content. However, it soon became apparent that he enjoyed videography the most, especially when he was able to incorporate what he learnt during his degree in Film Making. 

After passing his exams, Richard began working as a full-time Videographer, before a role opened up in the Marketing Team, where he works now.  

Richard said: “I absolutely love my role at the College, being creative and using different styles of video content. The team I work with bounce ideas off each other and encourage creativity, which I think is integral to any form of digital marketing today.  

“I get the chance to use high-quality equipment and software – and I always learn something new with every project.” 

When asked what he would say to someone thinking about applying for a role at Middlesbrough College, Richard said: 

“I would definitely recommend applying – even if you’re coming from a different work background or haven’t worked in education before. It may seem like a big change, but the College supports you in every way. You work with people from different departments and can get involved in a wide range of things!” 

In his spare time, Richard enjoys heavy metal and designs his own card games.
