Attractions

Richard, from WorkSecure Group, led us through the old East End, in an attempt to bring the Criminology A level course to life. He succeeded beautifully in galvanising the students. The use of techniques honed in the Police service excited the students, and engagement was thus on high alert throughout! Richard constantly challenged perceptions, and filled in many a gap in understanding and knowledge. The activity on surveillance along Shoreditch High Street was a particularly memorable aspect. Students were able to bring the practical demonstrations back into the classroom, in preparation for exams.
