Embracing the Future
A seminar series which focuses on the Turkish community in London, their educational problems and the role the parents should play.
Educational achievement levels of Turkish speaking pupils in the UK are very low. Many youngsters leave school without completing their GCSE's, and many display traits of anti-social behaviour, involve in gangs and use drugs. Our "Embracing the Future" seminar series provided an extensive medium for educational specialists, community leaders and representatives of several related organisatios to come together and discuss potential solutions as well as directly interact with parents.
The project consists of three stages.
- The research, study and analysis of the subject title;
- The production of a detailed report of the findings and recommendations;
- The dissemination of this report via various means
The main thrust of the study is to produce a set of detailed and pragmatic recommmendations based on academic research including surveys and analysis.
