Our Learning Diversity students recently enjoyed a wonderful art workshop with EDI Ambassador & Product Design teacher, Emma Tincombe. 

Students spent the afternoon using creative techniques such as tracing and colouring to create beautiful artwork inspired by a wide selection of imagery. “It was a lovely afternoon and the students created some amazing pictures over the course of the workshop. We are really grateful that Emma was able to join us” said Dom Thompson, Director of Adult & Higher Education. 

Peter Symonds College has a strong focus on Equality, Diversity and Inclusion and Emma is one of a number of EDI Ambassadors for the College, specialising in Disability, Accessibility, Wellness and Neurodiversity (DAWN). 

Our Learning Diversity courses offer small and friendly classes for adults with learning disabilities, allowing students to learn at a pace that suits their own abilities and confidence levels. For further information about these courses, contact us at
