Tree planting with WCARA as part of National Tree Week

The 23rd of November to 1st December is #NationalTreeWeek which is a festival to mark the winter tree planting season. Trees are evermore important during this time of climate emergency and what a great way to get children and adults involved in something meaningful in our community!

On Saturday the 23rd of November Shivani (Founder) attended the tree planting event alongside her family. Shivani recently discovered WCARA at a public community meeting and was amazed at the incredible work they do.

Working with NRCSE to make learning more creative at Big Fish Tutors

On Thursday 7th November 2019, the founder of Big Fish Tutors Shivani Shah attended a networking event hosted by the National Resource Centre for Supplementary Education (NRCSE) exploring the theme of Creative Teaching and Learning.

The event was centred on channeling how arts can play a distinctive role in helping children to create meaning and make sense of the world, providing them with the essential skills they need to succeed in life. The session focused on the role that art and cultural learning play in transforming young people’s lives, and how it plays a fundamental role in providing supplementary support for school’s and teachers to adopt a more creative approach in their teaching. The NRCSE invited two amazing keynote guess speakers, Artis Foundation, who’s mission is to transform lives through art, and Tanzilia Zaman who is a motivational speaker and author.

Through presentations and interactive work shops, the event effectively explored how arts and cultural learning can widen pupil engagement, help enhance creativity, supports language learning and improve problem solving skills. The workshop gave us deeper insight on how Big Fish Tutors can embed creative arts into our academic curriculum.

Working with Brent for Safer Tuition centres

On Thursday 31st of October 2019, our managers at Big Fish Tutors attended the Designated Safeguarding Lead (DSL) training course, to improve standards in out of school settings. The course was beneficial in providing detailed insight into the role and responsibilities of the Designated Safeguarding Lead.

In addition, the session expanded our knowledge on how the child protection process works in Brent. It provided Big Fish Tutors with a great opportunity to share good practices with colleagues from other out of school settings in developing safeguarding and supporting staff as well as volunteers.

Furthermore, the course taught us to consider the importance of safe practice in working with children, and awareness of the procedure in dealing with concerns about staff or volunteers. Through this training, Big Fish tutors is now able to use these useful transferable skills to create a safe and protected environment for all.
