Southwark College collaborated with schools from Italy, Spain and Poland to deliver a series of online activities as part of the Erasmus+ programme throughout February and March. This programme enables student exchanges between educational institutions in Europe.

This year the activities took place virtually where students from Italian school, IIS Corinaldesi Padovano and Polish school, IV Liceum Ogólnokształcące w Kielcach participated in a series of virtual workshops as part of the Role Models project

The project aimed to teach students how to recognise the positive and negative effects role models can have on themselves and society, and to be mindful of this when meeting new people. The workshops raised awareness of themes such as racism, human rights, peace, democracy, sexism and good values by showing students appropriate role models throughout Europe as examples. 

Giuliana Lain, Teacher at IIS Corinaldesi Padovano, commented: “In spite of the global pandemic, I am thrilled to have met so many amazing students during these workshops. It was a useful experience for students to discover new perspectives of role models whilst meeting new friends from other cultures.” 

Students also attended online workshops for the Unity in Diversity project hosted by IES Cantabria in Spain. The three-day workshop consisted of a range of activities including personal accounts, a Kahoot! Quiz and a musical performance, under the key theme of disability inclusion. 

Shazi Giner, International Manager at Southwark College, said: “I’m really pleased that we have been able to successfully run virtual events with our partner schools which included a range of enjoyable activities covering some important contemporary topics. We look forward to planning some in-person trips when it is safe to do so.” 

Both projects have been popular amongst students and they represent the many interesting and diverse activities that have taken place as a result of the College’s international collaborations. 

Erasmus+ is a programme that supports education, training, youth and sport in Europe. It enables students to expand their horizons by exploring different cultures while gaining invaluable skills and experience.
