Learners from various courses across the College shared their views on 'British Values’ and ‘Prevent’ at the recent Learner Conferences that took place at both the Dartford and Gravesend campuses led by Sue Barry, Teaching and Learning Partner. Learners had been selected by tutors from curriculum areas to be British Values Champions and to share their experiences of learning about British Values and Prevent.
During the conference, learners were asked to consider the meaning of British Values and Prevent with all sharing examples of how both had been incorporated into their learning. All discussed how they felt the Run, Hide, Tell awareness session had been important and thought provoking in respect to the current climate.

All champions shared how they felt the cross- college talks this year of British Values, Prevent, LGBT and Transgender and Run, Hide, Tell had been key in developing knowledge allowing better understanding and preparing them for the workplace.
Wendy Davies Assistant Principal of Teaching and Learning, said: “We are dedicated to promoting values which ensure that our students develop a strong sense of social and moral responsibility and are prepared for the workplace and society. We are educating the learners for life and to take an active role in society. The discussion today was heart-warming and motivating to hear so many thoughtful contributions and such lively debate.”
The next student conference is due to take place in July 2018.
