THE MASTER CUTLER VISITS FIRTH PARK ACADEMY AGAIN!
I visited Firth Park Academy in Sheffield yesterday morning with David Grey, the Master Cutler, to celebrate the achievement of their engineering, NHS and cultural ambassadors.
David and I had been invited to a celebration assembly at Firth Park Academy, which it is one of the real success stories for Made in Sheffield, because the programme has has such an impact on the students involved and has been so positively embraced by staff and students in both the advanced manufacturing and engineering and Sheffield Teaching Hospitals NHS trust strands and with the added bonus of the Cultural Ambassador programme. Firth Park was one of the original school involved in Made in Sheffield and at the end of the morning we met some of the amazing young people on their three programmes. The highlights of the visit were once again young people talking confidently and passionately about the programme, the impact it has had on their learning, their skills and their ambitions.
