The college welcomed students from our own Southall Community College and Tower Hamlets College, who undertook a copy-typing task with the addition of inserting an image. The students were given 1 hour and 30 minutes to complete the task for a chance to represent the London Region in the Inclusive Skills: ICT national final in Birmingham later this year.

Deborah Dent from Ealing Council and Margaret Noel from Ealing Descendants judged the students’ work and picked the winners.

All students received certificates of participation. Amardeep Dadral said: “ICT is an important skill which enables me to work independently…I enjoyed taking part, I found the task challenging but I pushed through to the end, I felt very happy when they called my name, I am happy I won”.

The judges commented on the quality of work presented by students. Deborah Dent said: “The students were very excited to be here representing the London Region. It was quite inspirational watching them compete, although it was challenging they got on with their work and showed lots of concentration while undertaking the task… I think they did very well and should feel very proud”.

Inclusive Skills Competitions are designed to enable young people with learning difficulties and disabilities to showcase their work skills and are open to students with special educational needs working up to Level 1. Organised by NATSPEC, in partnership with the Association of Colleges and World Skills UK, these competitions aim to build links between further education colleges and employers across the country.

Andrew Beardall, Natspec’s London Region Coordinator collaborated with our Inclusive Learning department to organise the event. He said: “The reason we do these competitions is to develop employability skills and raise standards, particularly for this cohort… these types of competitions create wider benefits in terms of self-management and development and motivate and help students to gain confidence”.
