As part of their wider programme of study, some students at Confetti take either GCSE or Functional Skills English alongside their vocational subject.
Throughout the course, there is a focus on developing strong links between the creative industries and English.
In the last half-term students in English work on a variety of projects designed to enhance and support their creative writing techniques. Each week they work on a different creative writing style or genre with specific references to films, games, and music. Students are encouraged to make connections between English and their chosen industry.
They have worked on their lyric writing, creating narratives and characters and even illustrations.
This year’s projects are:
• Poetry and Lyrics
• Gothic Genre
• Picture Books
