Last week seven of our BTEC Level 3 fashion students visited Kielce in Poland as part of an Erasmus+ project looking at role models and democracy.

The visit included working with Polish and visiting Italian students in school as well as a city quest around Kielce and a trip to Krakow. The Polish students taught everyone a dance, the Italian group demonstrated how to make tiramisu and the English students showed everyone how to make paper roses.

Their teacher, Tapiwa Dingwiza, said "it was useful experience for students to leave their comfort zones, adapt to new surroundings and make new friends from different cultures. Above all, it boosted their independence and self-confidence through presentations and group projects. These are all valuable skills which will help them to transition to university life".

The next Erasmus project trip will be in November, when a group of Level 3 art students will visit a partner school in Waldkirch, Germany.
