Today marked the 100-year celebration of the birth of Raymond Williams, highlighting his contribution to adult education in Wales and beyond. We paid tribute to his work by holding an event where we discussed the ways in which education contributes to society.

We had the pleasure in welcoming four guest speakers, one of which was one of our inspiring learners, Shabnam Brookbank. Shabnam spoke about her journey to arrive in Wales and the journey through education and how it has empowered and helped her to integrate into society, how her experience has changed her perspective and how she wants to help other refugees integrate in the UK.

Shabnam said, “Raymond Williams believed in education for social purpose and social values of which I feel I am a real example. Education has given me a purpose and value and now I am helping others to give them the purpose and value.”

“I really feel that the education that I have had has really changed me for the better. I have learned new skills, but more importantly I have learned how education is different and how it works in Wales. I have also learned about Welsh society and culture which has made it easier for me to become part of the community in which I live.”

We would like to share our thanks to Shabnam and congratulate her on achieving her goals.
