Live in Lockdown: Broadening Horizons
It has been a busy term for our Level 2 students, who as well as their regular lessons and workload have also had the opportunity to take part in a range of our Live in Lockdown sessions to broaden their opportunities.
Our Childcare and Business Studies Level 2 students were able to take part in a fantastic live session on Hate Crime, with Lancashire Victim Support Officer Gabriella Bowers, who introduced the students to the different types of hate crime, how to recognise it and how to prevent it. The session was a fantastic way to enable students to become more knowledgeable and equip them with the skills to become active participants in society who tackle inequality and stop hate.
The same group were also lucky enough to be involved in a Labour Market talk, from Fiona Langan at the Young Chamber. Her session was aimed at motivating students for their future careers by identifying the current gaps in employment sectors in the local area. The aim was to support their decisions around their future pathways in Education, Health and Business.
But it was not just the Level 2 students who have been involved in our Live in Lockdown series, our HE students also had a guest speaker from Lancashire LGBT, Dr Lewis Turner who was talking all things, LGBT rights, equality and inclusion and supporting diversity in education and health settings.
Students from Level 4, 5 & 6 from our Early Years, Teaching and Learning and Health and Social Care degrees attended this session, which was not only an extremely informative session, but also provided students with support in their current lines of work in our in demand sectors.
