Last week we completed 105 students interviews which finished our Pre-Gold Stage of TICE. TICE Mentors traveled around the 5 North East schools (Longbenton Community College, Burnside Business & Enterprise College, Heaton Manor School, All Saints College and St Thomas More) and conducted 5 minute interviews with each and every student.
Before the interviews we hold a Pre-Gold Event where we bring along every student invited to the Gold Stage of TICE. This years event was held at Burnside Business & Enterprise College, where all schools came to together to hear more about the 3 days of workshops, the projects written by industry professionals and of course our annual Final Show.
At the event every student was given a presentation pack, this pack contains important information which provides an overview of the Gold Stage and every student is asked to bring this to their individual interviews.
Inside contains various questions the students are asked but most importantly, WHY do they want to be involved in the Gold Stage? As you’ll see from the various answers in this blog post, the answers are varied, insightful but most of all creative… can’t wait to start on Gold!!!
