Benjamin Britten Academy of Music & Mathematics

An 11-18 co-educational day school and Centre of Excellence in Mathematics

An inspiring Creative Careers Evening at Benjamin Britten

On Thursday 6 December we were very fortunate to be joined by professional Photographer Gillian Allard, professional Dancers Tom Bowes and Tom Hobden from Dance East Centre for Advanced Training and Illustrator Charli Vince who delivered workshops for our students in years 9,10 and 11 within their fields of expertise.

Following on from the workshops, parents were invited to join their children in a presentation from the three professionals around how they entered into the industry and the skills it takes to become successful in their fields. Jo Hand and Nicola Garret from Take your Place also delivered presentations on the value of the creative industry to the UK economy and accessing creative subjects at higher education. 

Following the presentations, parents and students had the chance to mingle with the professionals and ask them lots of questions whilst tucking into a delicious buffet!
