As part of their induction project at Kidderminster College, Creative Industries learners starting at Kidderminster College, took part in a themed performance after just one week of starting their course.
Level 1,2 and 3 students across our creative industries courses (Dance, Acting, Musical Theatre, Media and Music) all took part in the performance. The theme of the performance this year is Prevent and British Values, which aimed to promote British values of democracy, rules of law, individual liberty, and mutual respect and tolerance for those of different faiths and beliefs.
The college is keen to ensure that young people understand the importance of respect to prepare them for life in modern Britain, and a performance about these values will contribute to the learners’ spiritual, moral, social and cultural development.
Glyn Taylor-Marshall, Programme Leader of Creative Industries at Kidderminster College, says “The induction project gives our learners the chance to experience all aspects of creative industries by taking part in a themed performance.”
The Prevent and British Values theme will then be built on further as the learners progress with their courses and future careers.
Hollie Wilding-Yapp, a learner who performed at the event said: “It’s wonderful to learn all about democracy and political issues. I’m enjoying learning how to become a professional dancer here as not only do the tutors give you everything you need to go on to work in the industry, they also teach you about the society that you live in and social politics. These issues are also important when you go on to work as a professional in the Creative Industry”
The performance was broadcast live on Facebook for the first time at www.facebook.com/kidderminstercollege
