On-going sustainable relationship between the college, community groups and the police
“Initial assessment is good. The college identifies the needs of students very promptly and the support team provides suitable help and attention for students quickly.
“An excellent and extensive enrichment programme of visiting speakers, residential and field trips and visits complement the learning of students very well. It enables them to apply their knowledge outside the classroom and motivates them, broadening their horizons in a positive way.”
“The atmosphere at college is calm and welcoming and the behaviour and conduct of students are good. Students and staff are very respectful of each other. The college promotes the value of equality well and has been active in fostering a good understanding of diversity.”
The Rt Hon the Baroness Scotland QC has endorsed Arc’s work and commented:
“Your drama, your theatre, is theatre for change. These activities hold a mirror up to us and shine a light, making us see ourselves and the need for change. It shakes our complacency and moves our hearts. What could be more valuable than that? It is truly inspirational work, coming from the community and working directly with the community. It sets up the meaningful dialogue we desperately need if yet more young people are not lost to us.”
A student involve in one of the programmes said:
“It helped to get the message across in a fun but serious way. It made me take my education and life in general more seriously than before. It made me think about my actions and made me realise that I need to take responsibility.”
