Hull, Doncaster & Goole August 2018
01 August, 2018
Janet Morriss, Careers Adviser from Hull, joined forces with the Hull JobCentre Plus staff to compete in the World Cup Event at Brittania House. The teams were involved in several games including blow football and creating the best mascot. Our very creative Janet made the football you see on her colleague's head out of papier mache. Nothing like having a real live mascot!!
Katie Carmicheal and Sarah Stone (also advisers based at JobCentre Plus) cheered from the sidelines.
This is a lovely example of how our staff integrate and are accepted within the Job Centre. Well done ladies!
Learners celebrate Hull Pride
Learners on the aspire2work proramme in Hull have explored what LGBTQ+ stands for, how Pride celebrations started, and why it is important that we spread awareness and support for the LGBTQ+ community coinciding with Pride in Hull.
The learners looked at the history of the Pride flag, visited an art exhibition on sexuality, gender and society's expectations and created flags expressing different identities, sexualities and supportive quotes for those in the community. In GCSE maths they incorporated the LGBTQ+ theme in learning about Alan Turing and the enigma code, creating their own secret codes to share with the class. All these activities cumulated in students organising a 'Wear your colours with Pride' fundraiser day where they paid a £1 contribution to wear what they wanted, sold cakes and buns to staff in the Opportunity Centre and made tie dye t-shirts.
Beth .J. one of the learner organisers said "It showed that all students are supportive in celebrating Pride and people's individualities."
Money is still coming in and the students are donating proceeds to Pride Hull. When they returned to college on Monday, all learners said that they attended the Pride celebration and expressed the fun that they had at the event... some even wearing their hand made tie dye t-shirts!
Janet completes Race for Life
Janet Morris from the Hull National Careers Service team completed the Race for Life recently and submitted this photo "just to prove I did it!".
Janet said "Thank you everyone who sponsored me! It was very hot on the day but I managed to survive and I was very humbled by the amount of people doing the race and support. Next year I want to do the pretty muddy one if anyone else wants to join me. I raised £82 for Cancer Research. Thank you again team!
Well done Janet - it can't have been easy in the heat!
