SRtRC Wales educate young people in specialised workshops.
I really enjoyed this and I feel they should do another session. Chris was brilliant at presenting and performing and came across well.
Rachel Roberts, Senior Counsellor, ITEC
Over the past few months Education Worker Chris Stokes has been travelling right across South Wales meeting young people between the ages of 16 – 19 in ITEC training facilities.
ITEC Skills and Employment was established over 30 years ago to meet emerging skills gaps; today it has grown to become one of Wales's largest providers of skills and employment services. They help individuals start and progress their careers by matching their skills with those of local employers. Aligning supply and demand in this way ensures that their programmes are meaningful, effective, valued and sustainable to both individuals and employers.
Each of the workshops lasted for two hours and a variety of topics were discussed from homophobia to islamophobia and information on immigration.
In total Chris educated over 150 young people and thoroughly enjoyed meeting a wide variety of different personalities from various backgrounds in their local authority.
The local authorities reached were Bridgend, Caerphilly, Cardiff, Torfaen, RCT and Newport.
Rachel Roberts, Senior Counsellor who attended the Cardiff Workshop mentioned her students enjoyed the interactivity of the session and 99% of the young people in attendance either agreed or strongly agreed that they learnt something from the workshop.
This was a successful partnership that benefitted both Show Racism the Red Card and ITEC Skills and Employment. We look forward to strengthening this partnership in the near future.
