Enrichment Classes

The Apprentice

This enrichment pitched teams of two together to create and design a new cereal brand. This involved market and brand research, graphic design & marketing and presenting our new cereal to a panel of judges.

Myself and my partner achieved 1st Place and were awarded a voucher.

Programming

Introduction to the basics of programming. We were introduced to HTML5, CSS3 & JavaScript. Provided a good understanding of the basics of program flow, decision algorithms and looping.


I also looked further into SQL Commands as I was using it for one of my assignments in my Computer Science A-Level which involved creating a database in Microsoft Access.

Working With The Disabled

This enrichment lectured me on what its like to work with and care for people with disabilities. It debunked certain negative stereotypes associated with the disabled and provided a useful insight into the life of someone who is born with life changing disablities.


We also played games with them and experienced what it was like first-hand.

Graphic Design

This class involved using programs from the Adobe Creative Suite. Specifically Photoshop & Illustrator. We learned the basic of the popular tools. Such as marquee, pen, shape, selection, gradient etc. We covered techiques such as layering, masking, filters, adjustment layers etc.

Film Appreciation

I picked film appreciation to help facilitate my first-year AS Level Media Studies. We watched a certain genre of film and had to answer questions similar to those as the Media Studies exam. This helped better my knowledge of techniques used in film-making.

Ultimate Quiz

Ultimate Quiz is quite self-explanatory. We got together in teams, and had a quiz-off. Each week we would have a different quiz that had varying categories and we would record the scores. This class simply helped broaded my general knowledge.
