Through the establishment of the Media Technology Internship Program, Gander Collegiate is able to offer its students the opportunity to study television, video and media production as a part of their High School curriculum. Through a substantial grant from Human Resources Development Canada, a Video Production facility named Concorde Mediavision studio was constructed at Gander Collegiate. Through use of this facility, and in combination with a partnership arrangement with Cable Atlantic's Gander Studio as well as the support of corporate partners in Gander, students learn valuable skills through instruction as well hands-on video production experience.

Gander Collegiate’s Media Technology Internship Program was awarded the Conference Board of Canada / Royal Bank of Canada "PARTNERSHIP AWARD" for 2000-2001.
