Rt Hon Sadiq Khan MP, Shadow Lord Chancellor and Mosaic Ambassador will lead the speakers at a special celebration event to be held on Wednesday 19 June at Aston University, Birmingham to mark Mosaic’s achievements in the West Midlands.
In the last academic year alone over 900 children and young people from 34 primary and secondary schools from across Birmingham, Coventry, Walsall and Wolverhampton have been inspired by Mosaic’s intervention programmes to realise their talent and potential.
Children and young people from across the region were able to take part in a wide range of activities as part of Mosaic’s Primary School, Secondary School Programmes and Mosaic-Apax Enterprise Challenge, a national competition for schools.
As well as participating in dedicated mentoring sessions, participants of the programmes were able to visit HRH Prince Charles’ residence Clarence House, meet with the Duchess of Cornwall, visiting Parliament Square and the London Eye, take part in World of Work visits to local companies as well as meet with Barbara Windsor better known to the young people as Peggy Mitchel from East Enders.
At the centre of Mosaic’s success in the region is over 150 mentors from different professional backgrounds who have given up their valuable time to help the young people from the region. Without their support, Mosaic’s success would not be possible. Mosaic would like to thank all their mentors and the companies and organisation that have supported their programmes. These include Lloyds Bank, DLA Piper and 3GH Martenau, Ashton University, Birmingham City University, Department for Work and Pensions and West Midlands Police.
National Director, Jonathan Freeman commented:
“We are honoured that Mosaic Ambassador Rt Hon Sadiq Khan MP is joining us for this celebration of an amazing year of helping young people in the West Midlands. This has been an incredible year for Mosaic in the region and it is fitting that such a high-profile supporter of our work has taken time out to celebrate these achievements.”
Mosaic Regional Manager, Annalisa Lockett will host the event which will be held at Aston Business School Conference Centre and Hotel, Birmingham.
Other speakers at the event include Shabir Nawab, Chair of the West Midlands Regional Leadership Group, Kamal Hanif OBE, Head Teacher, Waverley School and Hateeb Hateeb a student from Waverley School in Birmingham.
