Well done to Tom for his outstanding efforts last week! 👏👏👏
Tom joined us for a week of work experience last week from JBVI at Duke's Secondary School having been a regular at our inclusive GCT Gaming Social on a Monday night.
Tom was outstanding all week so we asked him to write about his experience.
Read his full blog below!
‘The students that I have worked with at Duke's Secondary School have been so incredibly excited and enthusiastic. They’re a real joy to work with and as well as the 16 UCAS points that they gain once they complete Arts Award Gold, I have seen them become independent and creative thinkers.'
Rachael Rickwood, Assistant Producer (Children and Young People) at BALTIC Centre For Contemporary Art discusses what she feels JBVI students have taken from their Arts Award Gold experience.
