On Monday 24 June, Level 3 Business Administration students from Lewisham College supported by their course tutor Michael Armoogum, put on an employment rights and responsibilities event for other students at the college. The students have completed units on Personal Rights & Responsibilities and Organising an Event during their course and decided that their project would consist of a large-scale event opened up to the whole college.
Their Head of Faculty, Sue Hughes, said: "Our business students always impress us with their ideas, and this is no exception. They researched the employment rights area carefully and ensured that all of the key topics were covered.
"I think that a lot of the audience members have gone away with a new perspective on the subject and learnt something new."
External speakers from ACAS, United Voices and women's support group LAWRS were invited to talk about contemporary issues in employment law, practise and tribunals. The audience were then invited to put their questions to the group.
