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 Monday 7th February, we invited 7 schools from across London to join us at BT Sport.

To begin the day, students took part in a ‘speed dating’ session with a number of BT Sports employees to learn about the number of careers within sports broadcasting. Students had the chance to speak to Broadcasting Engineers, Head of PR, and Programme Writers. This was then followed by a tour of the studio. In the afternoon, students were split into two groups with one group building a studio, and the other creating a programme concept. The two groups then came together at the end to produce their own tv programme, recorded and presented by students.

On Thursday 20th January, we invited over 50 students from across London to join us at the Tower of London.

To begin the day, students were welcomed with a talk from a Yeoman Warder in front of the Raven enclosure. Students were given a historical overview of the Tower, before getting a lesson on public speaking. Students enjoyed a visit to the Jewel House where the Crown Jewels are kept.

Visiting the Crown Jewels helped students with their next activity which was to plan and deliver an alternative tour of the Tower, paying particular attention to Britain’s colonial past and how the tour would best reflect this.
