Actvise inspires new cooperation

Hammersmith and Fulham Education Business Partnership is delighted to be building on the success of Actvise by launching a new EU project this Autumn.  The EU Comenius programme has funded the piloting of the EBP’s successful Take Two programme in Finland and Bulgaria. Building on the strong partnership Hammersmith & Fulham EBP already has with the Salford Foundation on the Take Two  programme in the UK, it will be working with HUMAK University of the Applied Science in Helsinki and School 127 in Sophia to trial Take Two Europe.  The programme will launch in October and our European colleagues will visit London and Salford in November for a study tour to see Take Two in action.  The EBP’s partnership with HUMAK in Finland stems directly from the successful partnership on the Actvise project.

On top of this success the EBP was able, courtesy of HammersmithLondon, to premiere films produced by students from local schools across the borough as part of Take Two.  The students, their teachers and members of the public were all able to enjoy the films from the vantage of deck chairs in the square on what turned out to be, thankfully, a gloriously sunny lunchtime.  The Lady Mayor of Hammersmith and Fulham, Councilor Belinda Donovan said ‘The event was absolutely fantastic and it was so good to see the turnout of all the students showcasing their talents. It was clear to see that students who attended derived a well-deserved sense of achievement from seeing their finalised project on the wonderful Big Screen’.  The EBP hopes that the students on Take Two next year have as much to be proud of! 

Diana Edgecombe, EBP Manager, said ‘we are really excited to be taking Take Two to Europe and thrilled to be building on our partnership with HUMAK to do this.  The Actvise project has once again demonstrated the value of European partnership working and the Take Two Europe programme will continue that work’.
