NewVIc embraces the ‘mannequin challenge' with British Values


With the help of over 50 students and 30 staff, NewVIc have created what they think is Britain's first mannequin challenge based on British Values. Students designed the cards on display in the video and each card symbolises what NewVIc does to promote British Values across the whole spectrum of the college.  


Excited staff and students came together to film the video which was achieved with a minimum of ‘takes'.


The video came about from the an idea that the students had about exploring what British Values mean to them ... but with an added element of fun!


Emma Wood, Senior Vocational Tutor, whose idea it was to film the video, says: "I am extremely proud of the video and it really epitomises what we stand for in terms of our values.


"This was a true team effort and I'd like to offer a huge thank you and well done to all of the students and staff involved in the planning, filming and editing of the mannequin challenge video.


The video can be found on the college website, as well as on You Tube (


NewVIc's next open day is on Saturday 4 February (9.30 - 12.30) at the Prince Regent Lane campus.
