Spotlight on EUTC [Spring 2017 - Issue 02]
Welcome back to the 4th week of the Spring Term at EUTC. We're now beginning to build up to exams with a steady stream of mocks and practical assessments. Well done to Year 12 BTEC Music Performance students for recently completing one of their coursework units by performing for students live is Project Space One last week. The Projects Team has begun rolling out the 'Elstree Film Festival' project with local primary and secondary schools, taking some of our young mentors out to train future filmmakers and creatives in the art of storytelling. And with plenty more to crack on with, please take note of the upcoming events below.
- The theme for the week is ‘FACILITATE’ [as of 13.03.17]
“"Good ideas are like Nike sports shoes. They may facilitate success for an athlete who possesses them, but on their own they are nothing but an overpriced pair of sneakers. Sports shoes don't win races. Athletes do”. Felix Dennis
