Green fingered Seevic students transform their classrooms

Wednesday, 08 July 2015

K -huts36 Supported Internship students at Seevic College have been getting hands-on with an alternative approach to teamwork. 

As part of their work towards a qualification in Employability, the students have revamped their external classrooms.  From painting donated benches to planting flowers in recycled wellington boots, the students have given the area a much more appealing feel for all at the College, located at Runnymede Chase, Benfleet.

A project largely completed over the past two months, it now encompasses the modern look that the College provides.  With help from the Disability Inclusion Society once a week, the determined students have worked on rotation to make the developments a success.

Both students and staff introduced the new and improved classrooms to the rest of the College by hosting a cake sale.  Raising just under £70, the money will help to support any future touch-ups.

Julie Clark, Supported Internship Job Coordinator at the College, said: “The students have done a fantastic job in transforming the classrooms.  It’s a lot nicer place to work and study now!”. 

Seevic College’s Supported Internship programme helps those between the ages of 16 and 24 with a statement of special needs take their first step into employment; learning new skills in a friendly atmosphere in a way that’s tailored to meet their particular requirements.
