Creative Industries Taster Sessions for Year 10 School Pupils

East Ham Campus, London View on map

Newham College will host a series of interactive taster sessions to give participants the skills to showcase their abilities, in the form of a fashion show at our Summer Open Day.

Each session will relate to a specific field within the creative industries. Participants can choose to engage in any one of the following subjects:

  • Fashion
  • Tailoring
  • Digital Media
  • Hair & Beauty
  • Carpentry

The outcome will result in a full-scale fashion show that is set to be achieved by combining both practical and theoretical approaches to these subjects. Participants will experience teamwork, logistics and planning, key communications and many other transferable skills.  

It is an exciting opportunity for aspiring individuals to develop confidence and gain significant abilities in a completely unique way.
