VI Student Network: Stand up and speak out workshop!

Happy New Year! For our first event of 2019, we are running a workshop dedicated to building skills and confidence for speaking out at university, and elsewhere. We will be providing tips and advice on the best ways to engage with your lecturers, tutors or employers, and how to challenge situations or issues you may experience in those settings.

We will be collaborating with Extant to run this workshop covering areas such as body language, tone of voice and language. These skills will help you present yourself well and be effective when speaking out.

During the workshop we will be joined by Extant freelance artists Steven George and Amy Evans, who will also provide practical insights into their experiences and careers. They will then take part in a networking session held after the workshop, so you will get the chance to find out more about Extant and performing arts.

 When: Thursday 21st February 2019, Time:  6pm – 8.30pm

Where: Pocklington Hub, Tavistock House South (entrance D), Tavistock Square, London WC1H 9LG

VI Student Network Group – 15 March!

VI Student Network Focus Group

VI Student Network Focus Group

original article by TPT Posted by 

Want to meet and spend time with other visually impaired students?

London Vision is setting up a new network in London for visually impaired students. The VI Student Network will hold events where members can network with their peers and meet new people.

But London Vision wants to make sure the group is based on what students want and need so they’re holding a focus group on Thursday 15th March to help shape the new VI Students Network.

London Vision Networks Manager Alex Pepper said: “We want the events to be focused on what’s important to students so we want to hear from students about their student life: their lectures, university staff, learning resources, halls, accessibility and London life. Please come along and have your say at the focus group.”

London Vision is an organisation which supports vision impaired people and those at risk of losing their sight who live, work or study in London.

There will be an introduction and focus group for the first hour, followed by a networking session with some free drinks and snacks, as well as some prizes.

The focus group is from 6-8pm on Thursday 15th March at The Court, 1st floor, 108a Tottenham Court Road, London, W1R 5AA. The nearest tube station is Warren Street (7 minute walk). Assistance to and from the station will be available upon request.

To book your place and request any assistance you require, please email: alex.pepper@pocklington-trust.org.uk.
