It was a great way to see out 2013 when Mosaic Clubhouse members celebrated their achievements at a special awards ceremony, followed by a party.
The event highlighted the successful partnerships growing between Mosaic (which hosts the Living Well Partnership in Effra Road, Brixton) and the City Lit and Lambeth College.
Members proved their hard work gaining Certificates of Achievement (City Lit) in Customer Services, Peer Support, British Sign Language and Money Management. Meanwhile, those who have been attending year-long courses in Computers, Creative Writing and Basic Literacy (Lambeth College) received Certificates of Attendance.
All courses are run at the Living Well Partnership site; the idea being that people will use this as a stepping stone to further their education and attend courses at the colleges.
Alison Backhouse, Lambeth Project Coordinator, praised the enthusiasm from Mosaic members to open the doors to the City Lit in Lambeth. “You really helped us to get going,” she said. Michael Ratcliffe, Interim Adult Learning Quality and Curriculum Manager, Education, Learning and Skills – London Borough of Lambeth (pictured presenting Byron with his Customer Services’ certificate) promised lots of opportunities in 2014, including a commitment to enhanced money management courses to protect people’s “financial fitness”.
Summing it up for Mosaic, Nancy Holden, Support Worker said, “it was a great event to reflect on members’ achievements; City Lit courses are up and running again this year at Mosaic giving more people the chance to take part”.
