This is the final stage of the students’ TICE experience. Each student has 3 non-consecutive days in June to complete an industry-led project of their choice. Sponsored by numerous creative, design and digital companies and mentored by the TICE team, the students aim to complete their challenges to present and/or perform at their Final Showcase (July). The TICE team and mentors have a vast and varied range of industry contacts who support the TICE programme in many ways. The CREATE Stage is the opportunity for TICE students to work alongside business professionals, gain specialist advice, guidance and skills, plus produce an outstanding piece of work written by a particular company. The days are designed by the TICE mentors and carefully structured so that students have every opportunity to complete their projects well and to a high standard. The 3 days are non-consecutive, fully resourced and planned in coordination with the schools and the TICE team.
