I would advise them to get themselves physically fit and to maintain it. I would also say that a sense of humour is very important and the ability to laugh at themselves. They should have self discipline and be prepared to accept imposed discipline. Punctuality is very important as is respect for others. If they had sporting interests that would be a help.

Realist?
Realist
Realists are usually interested in 'things' - such as buildings, mechanics, equipment, tools, electronics etc. Their primary focus is dealing with these - as in building, fixing, operating or designing them. Involvement in these areas leads to high manual skills, or a fine aptitude for practical design - as found in the various forms of engineering.

Realists like to find practical solutions to problems using tools, technology and skilled work. Realists usually prefer to be active in their work environment, often do most of their work alone, and enjoy taking decisive action with a minimum amount of discussion and paperwork.

What will you Study?

The aim of the Level 6 Photography programme is to provide the learner with the opportunity to acquire the knowledge, skill and competence to work independently in a professional photographic setting or to progress to further or higher education and training. Through a series of workshops, lectures and self-directed learning, which are designed to develop and enhance the students visual, creative and theoretical awareness, this educational process aims to equip the learner with the skills necessary to produce a visually successful and coherent body of photographic work and the ability to articulate their work practice when necessary.

Important Colleges may add/remove modules to keep the course updated and to meet demands. Almost all PLC courses have a Work Experience module, which requires students to find their own placement in an area directly related to their course.
