“My journey has been insightful. Studying at City College Norwich allowed me to gain an understanding on how diverse the industry is. This meant I was introduced to new artists and companies and gave me the encouragement to go away and further research into the current industry.”Ashton Hall - Dance (2017), currently working with Sir Matthew Bourne’s New Adventures company and studying a degree in Contemporary Dance at Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance
“City College Norwich has prepared me in a way that feels like I am working in the industry in a real workplace which is very different from my old school environment. This has changed my outlook on possible work opportunities in future and has taught me how to communicate with people when those positions arise.”Ben Mills – Current Production Arts Student
“City College Norwich gave me the opportunity to develop my practical and theoretical knowledge of lighting systems, as well as confidence in using industry kit from a young age. I never thought I would have the chance to work in London venues and light shows and festivals for artists. CCN has helped me achieve this.”Nick Harvey – Production Arts (2016), now a Freelance Lighting Programmer and Technician
