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.

Supporting Young People in Business
Meet our Youngpreneurs mentee. Big Fish Tutors teamed up with Shreya Vagdia, aged 13 to support her desire for selling Indian garments to the community – younger and elder. She believes that the Indian diaspora in the UK can wear Indian garments to both Western and traditional occasions. Her dream is to design and produce her own garments. Shreya was one of five Youngpreneurs who showed that dedication and motivation can make a dream come true.
