On Thursday 14 March, NewVIc is hosting their annual anti-knife crime event - ‘Life not Knife'.
Students are invited to take part in activities and workshops with special guests including Local MPs, The British Red Cross, Trident Central Gangs Unit, a lead Trauma Nurse from The Royal London Hospital and a Self Defence Expert. The aim is to educate students on the dangers and impact of knife crime, teach them how to be safe and learn about the support that is available to them.
"To date, more than 4,500 young people from across London and Essex have been trained on how to create, shoot and edit vlogs!"
This week NewVIc Performing Arts students have been working on a social media project with facilitator and former Rising Star Vlogstar Challenge winner Justyn Hollett, exploring how to shoot, edit and produce their own vlogs. This unique training and competition is run by the Jack Petchey Foundation and Media Trust. The Vlogstar Challenge is also working in partnership with YouTube and the Evening Standard.
Newham Sixth Form College's latest Ofsted inspection has praised the college for being outstanding in their provision for personal development, behaviour and welfare. Students were found to achieve excellent results at the college. The report highlighted that "the proportion of students who successfully achieved their qualifications was high" with many students achieving top grades.
The report, published on the Ofsted website today (22 January 2019) confirms NewVIc as a diverse and collaborative community with excellent academic success, personal development and progression.
This year, NewVIc has been announced as the Newham hub for all Year 13 students applying to the University of Oxford, Wadham College.
Wadham College are working closely with NewVIc to support students and other Newham students with their admissions process.
NewVIc work in partnership with Greenwich University supporting the up and coming EPQ (Extended Project Qualification).
The number of students taking up the EPQ is growing rapidly, it is estimated around 30,000 students took the EPQ recently and this is growing each year. Universities look positively at an EPQ and value its rigorous academic content and the vast amount of time taken to complete this project.
