Avid in Education
Learn a professional workflow from day one
Giving students experience with professional-level workflows while they’re still at college or university is a great way to help them get a foothold in the creative industries when they graduate. From upping their chances of landing placements and apprenticeships to helping them impress employers and gain permanent work, the importance of knowing how to use industry-standard tools can’t be underestimated.
That’s why we’re big fans of Avid setups for education. As well as getting your students used to working with hardware and software they’d find in professional environments, Avid’s systems make it easier for your staff and technical team to offer a complete professional workflow. Everything from ingesting footage to organising how files are stored can be brought under the Avid umbrella, helping your students see how an end-to-end creative pipeline works, and reducing the chances of you needing to call tech support by bringing all your media work onto a single, stable platform.
Students ready to get started?
We’re helping our partners at Clear Cut post-production run an apprenticeship scheme that gives ambitious students the chance to get some industry experience. Get in touch to find out more!

The benefits of learning AVID
A byword for quality media creation and production, Avid solutions are used by audio, music and video professionals around the world. For students who want to create music, audio, or video or pursue a career in broadcast media, music, or audio production, knowing Avid is essential. Teaching Avid solutions in schools gives students the advantage of learning industry standard technologies, so they are better prepared for the future. Providers of professional film and music courses will also look more positively on undergraduate applicants who have experience with Avid tools. It is also important to educators, because their primary motivation is the success of their students. Accordingly they choose to teach the certified Avid curriculum so their students can gain real world experience. This curriculum forms the academic tier of the Avid Learning Partner Program (ALP) and covers the teaching of products ranging from video editing and broadcast news production, to music composition and sound design. The curriculum is by necessity scalable, delivered by partners across a mixture of schools, colleges and universities.
The programme provides curriculum, training, tools and professional certification, enabling students to take their careers to the next level. Avid also provides instructor training that brings educators up to speed and also runs ongoing certification classes to coincide with major product releases.
As an Avid Elite Partner for audio, video and storage, we’ve provided unified One Avid solutions for some of UK’s leading broadcasters, creative companies and universities, and have qualified engineers in-house - all of which means we’re the ones you want to call when you get started with Avid.
We’ll work with you to design custom setups to suit your video or audio suite, test them here at Jigsaw24 HQ and then install them at a time that’s convenient to you. We’ll provide handover training for your teaching staff and technical team, so they can get to work with complete confidence, and can provide bespoke support contracts that include 4 or 8-hour break/fix times, a dedicated point of
contact and even hardware loans in case something goes down. (If you don’t fancy that, we also provide free support over phone, email and Twitter.)
