Over the next month up to four hundred school children will participate in one of the most ambitious art projects the county has ever seen. Workshops are now in place for the creativity project connected to the new £46 million Redwoods Centre in Shrewsbury which is due to open in September.
The dramatic abandonment of Shrewsbury Town’s home match against Port Vale last week due to a fire may have put a dent in the home side promotion charge but the smooth evacuation of the 6,000 fans drew much praise. Overseen by a team of well drilled stewards, all trained and assessed through Telford College, ensured the emergency procedures were implemented immaculately.
Telford College is running the MIAS Mountain Bike (Off Road) Leaders Course (Level 1 and 2) on Saturday and Sunday April 21 and 22. This is the second presentation of the course following the highly successful launch event in March which saw a 100% success rate from participating candidates.
For many years the Health and Social Care full-time courses have been dominated by female students – with just a handful of males! This year’s intake includes Jordan Furey, Ryan Kelly and Tom Blakemore three male trailblazers who joined the first year BTEC Extended Diploma in Health and Social Care programme back in September and are on track to fulfil their professional ambitions.
A small group of eleven Foundation Degree Art and Design Students from Telford College have put together an exciting range of experimental pieces of artwork made especially for the Bear Steps Art Gallery in Shrewsbury which are to be exhibited there from Sunday April 8.
