A group of ESOL Level 1 learners from Southwark College participated in a special event on 6 March, aimed at helping young people who are new to the UK.

Organised by Coram, a specialist training provider, the Young Citizens Breaking Barriers Event welcomed the students for a day of inspirational speeches, interactive games, activities and workshops. The aim of the event was to improve understanding of the UK’s asylum process, rights and entitlements in children’s services, life in the UK, and resilience and wellbeing.

Students from Southwark took part in an activity entitled ‘Our past, present & future’, where – along with Coram’s Young Citizens – they shared some of their favourite memories, strengths and dreams for the future. Another workshop, ‘Your life in the UK’ was a safe space where they could talk about the difficulties they have faced and talk about the life and future they would like to create.

Garineh Mirzaei, Progress Coach at Southwark College, says: “The event was a fantastic, positive initiative for young people who have recently arrived in the UK. I was delighted to see our ESOL learners taking part so enthusiastically: it was great to hear them sharing their challenges and their plans for the future.”

Coram Children’s Legal Centre runs training courses for service providers in the statutory and voluntary sectors aimed at helping them improve their understanding of the legal rights of migrant and refugee children, young people and families.
