A Bracknell media student @BracWokCollege has created an #NHS tribute music video to thank all NHS staff working hard to save lives during the Coronavirus pandemic. 

We won’t run performed by Darren Hodge and edited by Jasmine Britten Pigram

Jasmine Britten Pigram, aged 16-years-old, from Bracknell, is studying a Creative Media Production and Technology Level 3 Extended Diploma at Activate Learning’s Bracknell and Wokingham College.  

Jasmine was asked by her mum’s partner, Darren Hodge, if she could create a video for him to accompany the tribute song that he had written. Mr Hodge rewrote the lyrics to Run by Snow Patrol to reflect the amazing work that the NHS are providing during the pandemic. He then sang and recorded it on his mobile phone.  

Jasmine then sourced images of the NHS and care workers from news reports and spliced them with the footage that Mr Hodge had recorded, creating a heartfelt video which she uploaded to YouTube on 10 May.  

She said: “I made the video for my mum’s partner who wanted to write a song dedicated to the NHS. He asked me to create a video for him relating to what’s happening right now. 

“I used Adobe Premiere Pro to help me create and edit the video. I knew how to use this program as I am currently studying creative media at college and have experience using all of the Adobe applications. 

“I was very thankful for being a part of the project as it made me feel as if people could trust that I could create something so special to make for them, especially as it was for the NHS.  

“I learnt a few new things, such as using different types of transitions while making of the video and I carried on trying to find new things to change. 

“I felt proud of myself when I had completed the project as it was quite difficult.” 

Darren Hodge said: “I have always been a believer in our NHS and our care workers, who are undoubtedly both undervalued and underpaid!   

“I was listening to Run by Snow Patrol and I thought that I could rewrite the lyrics to dedicate the song to all of the NHS and care workers working for us and putting their lives on the line.  

“I decided to play the backing track and record myself on my mobile. I then asked Jasmine if she would help me by putting some footage together and making it more meaningful by way of visual footage.  

“I think she did a great job, so a massive thanks to her for that.  

“I understand it is something that she is able to put towards her studies, as well as using it to spread the word and get more support for our NHS and care workers.” 

Samuel Instone, media teacher from Activate Learning, said: "Creative Media students at Bracknell and Wokingham College have been working effortlessly throughout the lockdown period.  

“One of our Level 3 Year 1 students in particular, Jasmine Britten Pigram, shared a video which she had edited together paying tribute to NHS workers and carers fighting COVID-19.  

“'We Won't Run' by Darren Hodge features the instrumental to "Run" (originally by Snow Patrol), with the lyrics customised to reflect on the hard work that has kept going throughout the lockdown to treat Coronavirus.

“Archive footage and still photographs from previous news reports were cut together with Darren's performance to create a heartfelt moving message to viewers.  

“Jasmine achieved this within her own time, outside of any assignment briefs, using the knowledge of using software including Adobe Premiere Pro that she has learnt at college. 

“It's a really uplifting discovery to find that our students are creatively working on their own projects and developing their growing skillset through video editing, sound mixing and videography."

Latest Education News

Further Education News

The FE News Channel gives you the latest education news and updates on emerging education strategies and the #FutureofEducation and the #FutureofWork.

Providing trustworthy and positive Further Education news and views since 2003, we are a digital news channel with a mixture of written word articles, podcasts and videos. Our specialisation is providing you with a mixture of the latest education news, our stance is always positive, sector building and sharing different perspectives and views from thought leaders, to provide you with a think tank of new ideas and solutions to bring the education sector together and come up with new innovative solutions and ideas.

FE News publish exclusive peer to peer thought leadership articles from our feature writers, as well as user generated content across our network of over 3000 Newsrooms, offering multiple sources of the latest education news across the Education and Employability sectors.

FE News also broadcast live events, podcasts with leading experts and thought leaders, webinars, video interviews and Further Education news bulletins so you receive the latest developments in Skills News and across the Apprenticeship, Further Education and Employability sectors.

Every week FE News has over 200 articles and new pieces of content per week. We are a news channel providing the latest Further Education News, giving insight from multiple sources on the latest education policy developments, latest strategies, through to our thought leaders who provide blue sky thinking strategy, best practice and innovation to help look into the future developments for education and the future of work.

In May 2020, FE News had over 120,000 unique visitors according to Google Analytics and over 200 new pieces of news content every week, from thought leadership articles, to the latest education news via written word, podcasts, video to press releases from across the sector.

We thought it would be helpful to explain how we tier our latest education news content and how you can get involved and understand how you can read the latest daily Further Education news and how we structure our FE Week of content:

Main Features

Our main features are exclusive and are thought leadership articles and blue sky thinking with experts writing peer to peer news articles about the future of education and the future of work. The focus is solution led thought leadership, sharing best practice, innovation and emerging strategy. These are often articles about the future of education and the future of work, they often then create future education news articles. We limit our main features to a maximum of 20 per week, as they are often about new concepts and new thought processes. Our main features are also exclusive articles responding to the latest education news, maybe an insight from an expert into a policy announcement or response to an education think tank report or a white paper.

FE Voices

FE Voices was originally set up as a section on FE News to give a voice back to the sector. As we now have over 3,000 newsrooms and contributors, FE Voices are usually thought leadership articles, they don’t necessarily have to be exclusive, but usually are, they are slightly shorter than Main Features. FE Voices can include more mixed media with the Further Education News articles, such as embedded podcasts and videos. Our sector response articles asking for different comments and opinions to education policy announcements or responding to a report of white paper are usually held in the FE Voices section. If we have a live podcast in an evening or a radio show such as SkillsWorldLive radio show, the next morning we place the FE podcast recording in the FE Voices section.

Sector News

In sector news we have a blend of content from Press Releases, education resources, reports, education research, white papers from a range of contributors. We have a lot of positive education news articles from colleges, awarding organisations and Apprenticeship Training Providers, press releases from DfE to Think Tanks giving the overview of a report, through to helpful resources to help you with delivering education strategies to your learners and students.


We have a range of education podcasts on FE News, from hour long full production FE podcasts such as SkillsWorldLive in conjunction with the Federation of Awarding Bodies, to weekly podcasts from experts and thought leaders, providing advice and guidance to leaders. FE News also record podcasts at conferences and events, giving you one on one podcasts with education and skills experts on the latest strategies and developments.

We have over 150 education podcasts on FE News, ranging from EdTech podcasts with experts discussing Education 4.0 and how technology is complimenting and transforming education, to podcasts with experts discussing education research, the future of work, how to develop skills systems for jobs of the future to interviews with the Apprenticeship and Skills Minister.

We record our own exclusive FE News podcasts, work in conjunction with sector partners such as FAB to create weekly podcasts and daily education podcasts, through to working with sector leaders creating exclusive education news podcasts.

Education Video Interviews

FE News have over 700 FE Video interviews and have been recording education video interviews with experts for over 12 years. These are usually vox pop video interviews with experts across education and work, discussing blue sky thinking ideas and views about the future of education and work.


FE News has a free events calendar to check out the latest conferences, webinars and events to keep up to date with the latest education news and strategies.

FE Newsrooms

The FE Newsroom is home to your content if you are a FE News contributor. It also help the audience develop relationship with either you as an individual or your organisation as they can click through and ‘box set’ consume all of your previous thought leadership articles, latest education news press releases, videos and education podcasts.

Do you want to contribute, share your ideas or vision or share a press release?

If you want to write a thought leadership article, share your ideas and vision for the future of education or the future of work, write a press release sharing the latest education news or contribute to a podcast, first of all you need to set up a FE Newsroom login (which is free): once the team have approved your newsroom (all content, newsrooms are all approved by a member of the FE News team- no robots are used in this process!), you can then start adding content (again all articles, videos and podcasts are all approved by the FE News editorial team before they go live on FE News). As all newsrooms and content are approved by the FE News team, there will be a slight delay on the team being able to review and approve content.
