Students on Career Pathways courses at Nottingham College have been supporting some local charities in the run up to Christmas. They took part in a National Citizenship Service programme through their course, which meant they could help others and learn valuable skills.

From fair­ground games to char­i­ty leg wax­es, and from mak­ing lunch­es and col­lect­ing warm clothes for home­less peo­ple, around forty stu­dents took part in the social action project. They learnt about local char­i­ties and planned events and fundrais­ing activities.

The four groups each chose a char­i­ty, then cre­at­ed their activ­i­ties accord­ing­ly. Oth­er stu­dents and staff at their cam­pus­es were very gen­er­ous with dona­tions as well.

Team Help­ing Oth­er Peo­ple’ (some of the stu­dents pic­tured) chose to focus on the issues of LGBTQ+ dis­crim­i­na­tion, and home­less­ness. They col­lect­ed clothes to donate to home­less char­i­ty The Fri­ary, and made pod­casts to high­light some issues faced by the LGBTQ+ community.

Team Tan­go’ learnt about the CARE pro­gramme by Notts Coun­ty FC, meet­ing par­tic­i­pants who have been affect­ed by can­cer. They also made and deliv­ered packed lunch­es to The Friary.

Team Super­stars’ did a char­i­ty leg wax and some fair­ground games to raise mon­ey for My Bag, a char­i­ty that helps chil­dren enter­ing the fos­ter care system. 

Team Minirolls’ put smiles on the faces of peo­ple who have had strokes, by vis­it­ing Not­ting­ham Stroke Club. They also com­plet­ed some ren­o­va­tions at the Port­land Cen­tre in The Mead­ows, a com­mu­ni­ty leisure cen­tre run by Notts Coun­ty FC.

Career Path­ways cours­es help stu­dents to build their con­fi­dence, per­son­al and social skills, plus Eng­lish and maths. These all help peo­ple towards fur­ther qual­i­fi­ca­tions in the future.
