Attracted over 600 participants in 2018 during 2 days of the festival at LASALLE
As we look ahead to S P A F 2019 we are running a workshop to highlight two of the categories that are becoming popular and where it is so easy for students to tie in with their school studies.
We will share some examples of previous work and give feedback from an adjudicator’s perspective. As the content is chosen by the student then there are possibilities for cross-curricular work.
We will, again, share examples from previous years and give some tips as to the training for this category. It is recognised as being such an important skill in the 21st-century workplace and the only way in which to become more confident is to begin young and “do it”!
