Life Creation, is an organisation based in Barking helping students to build confidence via workshops, mentoring and educational programmes. Working in partnership over a six week period students at Mayesbrook Park campus created an online radio programme lasting two hours. The programme containing music, debates and poems went out to 10,000 listeners, most of whom where young people.
Cathy Stygal head teacher at Mayesbrook Park campus said: ‘This was such a fantastic opportunity for our students to have their voices heard by their peers. It really did help to build their confidence and self-esteem. We’re already thinking about the next radio workshop programme!’
