Peterborough Regional College is being visited by a ‘Big Brother’ style diary room, for students to express their views on ‘Respect’, an agenda embedded across the college incorporating the respect of yourself, others, difference and the environment/community.
The interactive film pod will be set up in the student common room between 10 and 2 on Wednesday 20 February in conjunction with a special programme of events the College are running to celebrate and raise awareness of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender history month.
Lesbian Gay Bisexual & Transgender (LGB&T) History Month takes place every year in February, celebrating the lives and achievements of the LGB & T community and encourages communities to understand diversity and cultural pluralism as a positive force in society.
Working with social engagement specialists, Uscreate, and funding through LSIS, the interactive format of the pod enables students to make a substantial contribution to their college community by recording their views, opinions and experiences in a fun and different way. In addition, the Terrance Higgins Trust Charity will be giving out information relating to LGB&T, Cambridgeshire Constabulary will be tackling hate crime, the College’s Nurse and Youth Work team will be promoting the importance awareness of sexual health and the Multi faith Chaplaincy team will be available for support and discussion.
Peterborough Regional College have a strong Wellbeing Team consisting of a nurse, counsellor, careers advisor, youth work team, specialist support team, welfare advisor, multi-faith chaplaincy team and safeguarding team, who assist students with all areas of general and specific welfare.
