A performing arts student from South Thames College has landed an out-of-this-world opportunity, playing a lead role in the forthcoming Star Wars film.
22-year-old John Boyega will star in Star Wars VII alongside Hollywood veterans Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher and Mark Hamill, who will be reprising their roles as Han Solo, Princess Leia and Luke Skywalker. Although no official announcement has been made about his part, it is speculated that Boyega will play a Jedi in-training.
South Thames College is set to host a major skills and careers event drawing in young people from across southwest London. The Skills Show Experience will see over 40 employers, colleges and training providers come together on Thursday 8 May at the college's Wandsworth Campus.
The free event will inspire 14 – 25 year olds to explore the career paths, qualifications and training opportunities available to them. Visitors of all ages will be able to try their hand at over 50 'Have a Go' activities from bricklaying and DJing skills to handling reptiles and theatrical make-up.

Hospitality and Catering students from South Thames College produced a stunning four course meal under the supervision of acclaimed chef Bruno Loubet to raise almost £1000 for charity.
The students withstood the heat in the kitchen to cater for 64 lucky residents and employers from the local area who were invited to the student-run Taste restaurant at the College’s Merton Campus. The event was organised to raise money for Action Against Hunger, fund new equipment for the students and to give them vital experience of working at a large-scale catering event.
