Bursting with great ideas for careers and courses, the College of Haringey, Enfield and North East London took part in Skills London 2010 last week from Thursday to Saturday 7 â€“ 9 October. Almost forty thousand young people, mainly from London and the South East, their parents and their teachers are estimated to have thronged ExCel Centreâ€™s main exhibition hall.
Each day of the exhibition student make-up artists from the College’s Theatrical and Media Make-up VTCT Diploma Level 3 course decorated excited teens with frighteningly realistic gory cuts and scars which they proudly displayed to envious friends.
Student make-up artist, Fozia Mahmood, said: ”When I’m concentrating on the creating the wound I see it gradually come together and there’s always a point at which I gasp in horror because it just looks so real.”
Her long line of satisfied customers cheerfully agreed.
Howard Jeffrey, MBE, Director of Learner Support, said: “As a vocational College dedicated to matching learners to employment and employers’ needs it is vital to publicise our vocational courses to young people and their families at exhibitions such as Skills London. The College is holding a series of careers workshops at our Open Days which will show young people the best routes to their success in terms of salaries and job satisfaction.
The College gave out information and advice to many thousands of young people over the three-day period and hopes to see hundreds again at its forthcoming Open Days on 3 November for Enfield Centre and 24 November for Tottenham Centre, where we will also be holding career workshops.
