Open Evening Event - February 25th & February 26th 2015

Everyone’s Invited to NPTC Group's Open Evening!

On Wednesday 25th February (Afan Campus) and Thursday 26th February (Neath Campus) the Creative, Visual and Performing Arts Department will be holding the first open evening event of 2015, inviting all perspective students to attend.  

At Neath the evening will be based at the state of the art Nidum Arts Centre (5pm – 7pm) and will give the local community an opportunity to see the department’s facilities and speak to the lecturers across all the creative disciplines about the course options for September 2015. 

Alex Herriot, Acting Head of School believes that;

“Open evenings are really important to us here in CVP.  It gives us the opportunity to speak with young people and their parents face to face, giving them the best possible advice on their future education.”

This year has been a particularly exciting year for the department and has attracted the attention of National Youth Arts Wales following the success of the Sports and Cultural Scholarship Awards.  Pauline Crossley of NYAW presented the department’s highest achievers in Media, Art and Performing Arts, giving an inspiration speech on the importance of the creative subjects across Welsh education. 

The department has also seen huge success at this year’s annual Prize Giving event in December, recognising the success of both lecturing staff and students.

Craig Coombs, Acting Deputy Head of School states that;

“We pride ourselves on providing the best education for the Creative, Visual and Performing Arts at NPTC Group.  Our current learners share the vision of the department and we endeavour to give our young people the best educational experiences during their time with us.  We hope this open evening attracts many new faces so that our dedicated team of lecturers can answer any questions about the subjects available.”
