On Thursday 17 October, three students from South & City College Birmingham were taken out of college at 7am in the morning and flown to Dublin. The whole day was a surprise to them - they had no idea where they were going, or what they would be doing. 

They were taken to the world-renowned Windmill Lane Recording studios and given the opportunity to record with a live band and meet top producers. Watch our video to find out what happened.


In the build up to this year's Skills Show, City & Guilds is opening doors for young people to inspire them about their futures. It has teamed up with top employers and YouTube personalities (such as thatcher Joe Sugg) to highlight opportunities and explore different skills pathways.
