Group projects completed by Walsall College’s ESOL and community learning students went on display as part of a Festival of Learning event to celebrate the end of their college year.
The students exhibited work that demonstrated their learning progress to their peers at the Whitehall Campus. Topics covered included sustainability, mental health, exam tips, healthy eating and the NHS.
Each group spoke about the research they carried out about their chosen topic. They recommended strategies and shared advice they believed would best support others.
Students also received certificates of achievement in recognition of the qualifications they had gained in speaking, reading and writing.
“My colleagues and I are so proud of how far our learners have come in terms of developing their communication skills and confidence,” said Geetanjali Bhucher, Curriculum Delivery Manager at the college. “What’s also been evident is a desire to support others in and outside the college, from their family circles to people throughout the wider community. Each project and presentation highlighted this effectively.”
Geetanjali continued: “My message to all the students was to continue enjoying their success while looking ahead to future learning opportunities available to them.
“We look forward to supporting everyone with the next stages of their learning, whether that’s further English studies, pursuing a vocational-based qualification or an employment-based training course.”
