A group of our Pre-Apprenticeship students have been taking part in a programme to build self-esteem and raise aspirations.
The workshops have been delivered by Action for Race Equality. Here’s the positive impact it had on one student:
‘Honestly, the workshops have helped me to change my self perception and my confidence levels have been raised. I now feel more certain about my next steps in how I want to pursue my aspirations.’
A teacher was similarly impressed with the sessions:
‘It was amazing to see less confident students have the opportunity to develop their public speaking skills and articulate their hopes and dreams for the future. It was particularly interesting to see how students responded to the questions the organisers asked, forcing them to expand on their ideas and make their plans more concrete.’
We look forward to hosting this workshop again for other students.
