South Thames College alumnus Elizabeth Kwarteng-Amaning and founder of local charity Aspire2Inspire Dyslexia is currently working with learners and staff at the College to unlock the potential of Dyslexics.
Dyslexia affects 1 in 10 people and Elizabeth set up the Aspire2Inspire organisation after identifying a gap in services to support adults with Dyslexia and other learning difficulties, with starting businesses, getting back in to education or improving their employability skills. Elizabeth’s current links with the College cover a number of areas including, support during Freshers’ Week, delivering events such as ‘Building a Career with Dyslexia’ and recently taking on a business student for a 5 week work experience placement.
On 27th March, a group of our Entry 3 EIS students visited London’s South Bank and Tate Modern to experience British culture and develop their language skills.
The group had a walking tour along the South bank lead by their teacher Ginny McKay. They found out about the landmarks and history of this part of London en route to the Tate Modern where they spent the majority of their visit in the Artist and Society gallery.
The students really enjoyed the experience and enjoyed finding out about aspects of British culture as well as spending time together outside the classroom.
