As the academic year draws to a close, there’s been plenty to celebrate at High Trees. We started the month with our ESOL Learner Celebration Day, with great food and even our own DJ! The Children, Young People and Families team achieved the London Youth Gold Mark and the Lambeth Council Adult Learning Awards saw two successes for High Trees and the Place for All Partnership!
Winner of the Outstanding Learner Awards!
Last week at the online Lambeth Council Adult Learner Awards, High Trees service users were presented with both the Outstanding Learner Group Award and the Outstanding Learner of the Year Award! 
AMPLA, are the winners of the winners of the Outstanding Learner Group Award. They are a group of Latin American parents formed via our partner IRMO. AMPLA  approached High Trees for community organising support in 2019. With the help of High Trees Community Action team and our ESOL tutors, the group learnt about how to act on local issues they were passionate about. On receiving the award, the group reflected “This is great, and it’s so nice to be able to have skills to help the community”.
Roberto Faedda, a Pre-employment training (PET) student from High Trees was presented the Outstanding Learner of the Year Award. Roberto came to High Trees after being made redundant which severely impacted his confidence. Our Employment and Careers service supported Roberto and he soon felt ready to apply for his dream job as a Work Coach. Roberto shared his thanks during the ceremony “this experience has made me realise there’s hope even in the darkness. My life changed. High Trees changed my life”.
We’re so proud of our learners, partners, and the High Trees team for these amazing achievements! Our new term of courses will begin in September, if you or someone you know are interested in free adult education courses check out our website.

Gold for the Adventure Playground!
In July we received the very exciting news that our Children, Young People and Families team received the London Youth Gold Mark. This is such a great achievement for the team and demonstrates all their hard work over this year, especially the support they provided during Covid-19 restrictions. London Youth when presenting this award said “your teams dedication and commitment to the wellbeing and development of the young people you support is amazing”.

Building on Community Organising
Our Community Action team are continuing to support local residents as they grow their Action Group to tackle common concerns. The group have been door knocking to build relationships with their neighbours and strengthen their collective power. Together, they are aiming to negotiate with key decision makers in the coming weeks. We’re looking forward to seeing the group go from strength to strength.
