Students on the Pre-Employment Trainership programme really got involved on International Women's Day on the 8th of March 2018.  After hearing about statistics that affect women all over the world from violence to pay inequality and celebrated women like Mother Theresa, Michelle Obama and many more, they decided to do presentations about women they admired. 

There are two presentations linked at the bottom: a presentation about Michelle Obama by Stefan Roye-Williams, and another one created by C'Jay Allen of Rosa Louise McCauley Parks. Their tutor, Segs, said: "I was very impressed at how quickly C'Jay put the presentation together and the special effects she used were amazing. And I was very impressed at the determination of Steffan to complete the presentation, and, to such good effect. Well done!".

We hope you enjoy the following presentations:

I want to write about our volunteering visit to Museum of London on 12 /10/17. We walked with my classes 15 minutes to Mortimer Wheeler House. When we got to the Museum of London we met officials and they told us information about the museum. They started to show us around the museum.

We wore special gloves and labelled the objects and archived them. We also learnt about different objects from all over the world. We really enjoyed the experience.

On Wednesday 19th July we hosted another fantastic student celebration day event. The day started off with a series of workshops held by ELATT staff and our amazing volunteers from Lloyds Bank who kindly hosted two workshops; cyber security and mobile savviness. Crowdskills also hosted a workshop in entrepreneulism which interested so many of our students. We had so many other interesting workshops such as salsa dancing! We were surprised by how many students arrived to our workshops and lunch, and were as happy as them to be present during the day.
