Callum passing on skills to young people with work placement

Performing arts student at Clarendon Sixth Form College passes on skills to young people with industry placement.

Callum Smith, a former St Philip Howard School pupil, is taking part in an industry placement with acting school, Cherry Pips.

During his placement, Callum has been working with young people to develop their skills; playing acting games to build their confidence, helping them to understand scripts and leading improvisation work.

The classes are also helping Callum to develop his skills in the industry, preparing him for a future career in performing arts.

Students on a course at Clarendon Sixth Form College take part in regular work placements and work related visits. These allow students to gain ‘on the job’ work experience and build on theory work.

Lucy Barker, director at Cherry Pips, said: “Callum has shown a real drive to grow as a performer and now as a facilitator during his time with us at Cherry Pips. He is always open to receiving constructive feedback with a view to truly understanding the creative medium we are working in and also to be able to offer other students and peers support and feedback on their work. Callum is an absolute pleasure to work with and retains an admirable mindset that can only set him up for future success.”
