London Centre for Social Studies (LCSS) hosted an enthusiastic group of students and teachers from Lycée Jeanne d'Arc University, Rennes – France, on their field trip the passing Wednesday. A group of thirty-six second-year students in studying their baccalaureate in Home-Economics and are preparing to work as social workers, home-Economics advisers and related field of career choices. Alongside their visit to LCSS, the group had also been to similar non-governmental organisations such as YMCA and the Salvation Army.

We discussed social work in the UK as well as LCSS’s previous and ongoing activities, our project co-ordinator, Sherife Tekdal, started her presentation with explaining what LCSS is and highlighted many times the importance of networking in academic life by giving some specific examples in her own experience. Sherife illustrated how successful community based projects come to life and what stages should be followed in order to come up with an original project idea, carry on and complete a project with funding sources. She applied her points by mentioning one of the LCSS’s previous project, Raising Expectations: Promoting the Visibility of Role Models within the Turkish Community in Britain and the stages it had been through until the project was implemented and finalized.
