On Monday 6th June, Naz Legacy celebrated the Queens Jubilee with over 40 students from across London touring RFA Mounts Bay in conjunction with the Royal Navy. The young people were able explore the ship, ask questions, and learn more about the work carried out by the Royal Navy.
Navy officers shared their journey into the armed forces, told stories and provided a unique experience for the young people. To build on this experience, the Naz Legacy Foundation will be hosting two further Diversity Days with the Royal Navy next academic year.
We would like to thank the Royal Navy for inviting us and sharing their expertise at this highly engaging visit.
On Wednesday 8th June, over 30 students from across London joined us at Downing College, University of Cambridge.
Students were given an introduction to the College, learning more about history of the University and student life. This was followed by a tour of the College grounds, where students were given the opportunity to see the facilities on offer.
After lunch, the young people were given an insight into subject options available to them, the decisions they need to make when choosing a course and university. The day ended with a Q&A session allowing young people the chance to ask students a variety of questions including accommodation, workload, and student finance.
We would like to thank COSARAF for making this day possible, as well as Downing College for hosting us and sharing their expertise at this highly engaging Diversity Day.
On Thursday 13th January, Naz Legacy hosted its first Diversity Day of 2022. Over 250 students from across England took part in a virtual event with ITN News. The session provided a space for a diverse group of young people to explore the various pathways into media & journalism and the variety of roles available within the sector and increase diversity in the field.
Students participated in an activity set by Channel 5 news correspondent Simon Vigar, whereby they were given the opportunity to report on a breaking news story. Pupils had to decide what they needed to include in preparing to report the story, and how they were going to cover the story. This was followed up by a very interactive session, delivered by the Award-winning senior producer at ITN Roohi Hasan, providing students with hints and tips on how to write a competitive job application when applying to work in the media industry. To end the session, students were given the opportunity to engage in a Q&A session with leading experts at ITN.
We would like to thank ITN for joining us and sharing their expertise at this highly engaging Diversity Day.
