The Trust this year match funds up to 3 creative areas per school in North Tyneside!
The TICE programme is an annually run programme starting in with recruitment processes in September and finishing with a final show in June/July at Northumbria University.
The 3 stages of the programme run directly in conjunction with the academic calendar in progressive levels enabling students to reflect on their achievements throughout, not to mention celebrating these achievements at their final show.
Each school is able to choose the creative areas they would like to concentrate on. Students are then picked to join the programme or an assembly takes place for a targeted year group and the students directly apply for the opportunity.
Each creative area is then assigned a mentor for their school and set of students. This mentor continues with the students from their Bronze Stage through to their Final Show. For further information on the TICE Programme

“Longbenton Community College have taken part in the TICE programme for the last five years, giving all of our year 10 students the opportunity to take part. It has proved to be one of the most inspiring projects that our pupils experience, opening their minds to a whole world of potential pathways in the creative industry sector. Our Gold students (we had 29 reach Gold this year) – return to college knowing that they can work well under pressure, using current industry standard technology, producing work of real professional quality, that they are immensely proud of. Transferrable skills such as working in a team, leadership and problem-solving are all employed and look fantastic on their C.V.s! I cannot praise the team at TICE highly enough for the efforts and patience they put into working with our pupils”. Ms J. Younger, Longbenton Community College.
