English and Maths students at Southwark College celebrated Equality, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI) with a series of projects highlighting the importance of diversity in their lives.

Maths students created presentations set across key themes within communities, putting the spotlight on inequalities that people may face in employment, salary and accessing opportunities. Students on English courses also created Diamond poems, a structure within poetry that compares two opposing sides of one subject. 

Students were also encouraged to explore themes within their own lives, including mental health, religion, culture, societal expectations and inequality as well as some of the personal stories they have faced.  

Annette Cast, Principal at Southwark College, said: “Diversity, Equality and Inclusion are in the DNA of our College culture. Part of that is achieved through supporting our students to participate and learn about how our differences can make us stronger as a community. 

“As we approach the end of term, these projects have provided a positive activity to achieve after a very challenging year. They enabled the students to have an open space for discussion about EDI and the results speak for themselves; our learners produced excellent pieces of work, which highlighted and celebrated the importance of diversity, equality and inclusion.”
