The graduates have been extensively trained with practical skills and lessons from top production professionals and also awarded certificates after completing the course.
The certificates are from the Directorate of Industrial Training under the Ministry of Education.

“We saw them work on the recently concluded MTN Momo Waaka campaign, Guinness Bright house event at Motiv and the Live broadcast students were part of the recently held Azawi concert,” Swangz Avenue said.
During the course of five weeks, the graduates learned an array of skills including music production, video editing among others but also got a mentorship session from the legendary Benon Mugumbya and Swangz Avenue CEO Julius Kyazze.
