I was drawn to City College Norwich as it was the only college in the area offering this type of course
Before attending City College Norwich, I had taken my GCSEs at high school. As well as volunteering at local venues and music festival events.
Time & confidence
Attending CCN gave me the time and confidence to achieve the things I never thought I would have the chance to. I was treated as a young adult and a professional, rather than just as a typical student.
Techniques & ideas
I have so many experiences that stand out from my time at CCN; from working on the final major show season, to meeting industry professionals – the course allowed us to push the projects to a higher level and try out techniques and ideas that interested us.
Practical & theoretical knowledge
CCN 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.
In future, I aim to become a full time lighting designer and programmer for concert touring as well as going travelling and spending time with friends.
