“The Ready to Work” launch event which took place at City College Nottingham on 28th November was a success! It was a great way to end the first project and launch the new programme starting in January.
The event included speeches from the Principle of City College Nottingham and Councillor Nick McDonald (Bulwell Forest Ward Councillor and Portfolio Holder for Jobs, Skills and Business) Following on from this we had presentations from some of the young people and two youth and community development students who took part in the programme which highlighted their best bits and what they have learnt. A poem was read out, written by one of the youth workers who has had an input throughout the project. The event ended with lunch and a video of the outline of the programme, showing some of the activities which took place and the thoughts and opinions of the young people and people who had involvement in the programme.
