Life Creation, an organisation based in Barking has been helping students at Mayesbrook Park campus to build confidence via workshops and mentoring. Over the past six weeks, students from Mayesbrook Park campus have been taking part in radio workshops as well as having the opportunity to spend time at Unity Xtra, a radio station based in Neasden. Students took part in live discussions on air about youth crime and were able to share their own personal views.
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!’
