Congratulations to the Music For Life Students!
On Friday the 22nd of September 2006 Sunbeams Music Trust held an Awards ceremony for 21 artists who had gained their Music for Life Programme Qualifications.
The Awardees stunned the audience with their performances, integrating some of the work that they had done to gain the Music for Life Programme Qualifications.
Tony Cunningham MP, who is also the patron of Maryport COSC and Jamie Reed MP presented the awards.
The ceremony represented a hugely significant landmark in the lives of 21 very brave and courageous people in West Cumbria, who have worked so hard to achieve their qualifications. The students were from Cleator Moor COSC (Copeland Occupational Social Club), Maryport COSC and Hensingham Adult Training Centre.
The programme was written by Sunbeams Music Trust and approved by The Open College Network as one of the most innovative and well-thought schemes of work. The candidates gained their qualifications with what the External Examiner described as ''the best and highest quality evidence she has ever monitored for this level of learner''.
Sponsorship was gained from DEFRA, CCC Neighbourhood Forum, CBC Neighbourhood Forum, ESF Global Grants, LSC Cumbria and Cumbria Community Foundation to enable the Music for Life workshops and the ceremony to take place.
