Learner Voice – a trip to Birmingham

Students from across the college centres joined together to go to Natspec’s National Student Voice Parliament in Birmingham.

Our students met with peers from colleges across the country, at an event that Natspec describes as an opportunity to discuss ‘positive and creative ways of conveying important messages’. The groups made posters about issues that are important to them, and to explain how people with learning difficulties or disabilities may like to be supported.

The event also gave delegates the opportunity to discuss issues that matter to them, how disabilities are perceived, and what it is like to have an invisible disability. Our students thoroughly enjoyed the experience and have taken so much away from the event.

It was also a lovely opportunity to get together with students from other centres, to travel together and enjoy a sociable day out. The day was such a success we’re already planning to go back next year!

As a result of outstanding teaching, over time students make excellent progress and develop the knowledge and skills they need to achieve their goals.
