Rock Assembly 2017 is an annual careers fair with a pop up concert for 10,000 school students. It took place at SSEE Arena in Wembley and Sir Herbert Leon Academy were given the opportunity to attend this event.
With the support of Study Higher, 40 students were able to attend a very interactive and varied career’s fair, before descending to their seats to experience a live concert - for some it was their first time in a very prestigious venue.
This event was organised by The Transformation Trust. As an educational charity they are “dedicated to opening doors of opportunity to young people across the country, offering pupils the skills they need to build their employability status and confidence".
Kiss Fm’s The Dixon Brothers kept the crowd going with their positive energy and messages about careers and choices. The brothers also had some special help from Chris Martin from Coldplay and Ollie Murs to name a few! The two hour concert saw the students dancing and singing along to various songs from Gavin James, Some Velvet Morning, Sarah Close and the headliners – The Vamps.
This event was free to the students and provided them with a great experience and a fantastic starting point for them to consider where they would like to be in the future.
