The new year started off busy and ended even busier
“I really enjoyed this session and they should do another session. Chris was brilliant at presenting and came across well. Previously, I had attended a seminar similar at Ninian Park in 2009, would like more workshops”.
A very busy month kicked off with Equalities training at Companies House, the 1st of 7 workshops delivered with their staff along with a further 4 workshops with Newport Council staff meant that over 150 public sector employees had received the introduction to the Equality Act training in January. Our new workers Noam Devey and Lindsey Bridgeman joined us and started their induction and training programme.
There were 25 workshops delivered with 7 Primary and 2 Secondary schools. The new Immigration workshop was piloted with 3 ITEC centres with 17-20 year olds and feedback was positive from the sessions. Club events were also delivered with TNS FC and Newtown FC, the Academy players at TNS were also provided with an anti-racism workshop later in the evening.
The month concluded with the our annual review with the Deputy Minister for Culture, Sport and Tourism Ken Skates attending as special guest along with speakers from Simpson Millar LLP solicitors, Companies House and ex-footballer Steve Jenkins, the event was followed by a 6-a-side football match between SRTRC staff and Welsh Government, a close encounter with plenty of goals ending with a 8-6 win for SRTRC Wales.
