Voices in Lockdown: Our Students Share their Experiences

Student experience of lockdown

Last term, Debbie Bogard, one of our History and Politics teachers, encouraged her students to produce a series of lockdown podcasts.

Three discussions, which have since featured in Tes, the leading education magazine, gave students and alumni of the college the opportunity to share their experiences and lessons of the lockdown.

Debbie, who is also a learner enhancement coach at the college, said:

“The overall vision is to encourage students to think beyond the limitations of the curriculum, to find value and meaning in what they’re studying, and to make connections between and across their A-levels and the contemporary world.“

With each episode giving a voice to a different year group, the series was a resounding success with staff and students, and you can listen to all three episodes on YouTube.
