Students perform at community event for #NAW2017

Performing arts students from Clarendon Sixth Form College joined staff from Tameside College and Tameside Council to do an opening performance for an apprenticeship information event in Ashton town centre.

The apprenticeship information event highlighted the value of apprenticeships and the benefits of acquiring vital work experience. Students spoke with advisors from Tameside College and took part in the ‘have-a-go’ activities which included, cupcake decorating with level 3 bakery students, Tegan Heath and Melissa Southall and hairstyling with Janine Davey, hairdressing teacher at Tameside College.

Performing arts students sang a rendition of the Disney hit, “How Far I'll Go” from the new film, Moana for the first time to a pleased crowd of market goers.

Melissa Jones, Marketing Executive at Tameside College, said: “Clarendon’s performing arts students did an amazing performance. It was a great way to open the event and create a bit of a buzz around the stands. We had a great afternoon at Ashton market and had a lot of interest from young people picking up advice leaflets and asking about our apprenticeship vacancies.”

Richard Goodwin, performing arts teacher at Clarendon Sixth Form College, said: “We’re really proud of how well the students have  done and it’s always  a great experience for them to perform at external events like the apprenticeship information event so they can hone their live performance skills.”
