Louise Hill-Davies with her Anthology book

This week, Louise Hill-Davies has achieved a significant milestone by becoming a published author. She has contributed to a collective anthology of poetry and short stories featuring works from authors who have persevered through adversity and injustice to find a route forward against the odds. This remarkable anthology includes contributions from notable figures such as Greg Williams, actress Courteney Cox, actors Hero Fiennes Tiffin and Jay Ellis, YouTuber KSI, rugby union player Maro Itoje, and singer-songwriter Sinead Harnett, among many others. 

The book centres around powerful life lessons, with contributors sharing their experiences navigating difficult personal circumstances. It showcases how, even when weathering the toughest storms, they found the strength to move forward instead of giving up. This anthology is a powerful celebration of human resilience and love, offering a vehicle for hope and encouraging readers to create a better ecosystem for preserving their mental health and wellbeing.

Louise’s story, based on true events, centres on Lauren, a mother who faced systemic racism through the healthcare she received during the birth of her daughter. This powerful narrative shines a critical but necessary light on the challenges black women encounter in maternal care. Louise’s work not only resonates deeply on a personal level but also addresses broader societal issues, a message she passionately shares with our health learners. 

We are incredibly proud of Louise for her amazing contribution to this anthology. Her story is not only a testament to her strength and resilience but also an important reminder of the work still needed to address systemic racism in healthcare. Louise’s voice adds a crucial perspective to this collection, and her dedication to raising awareness is truly commendable. 

Louise’s involvement in this anthology underscores her commitment to advocacy and education, highlighting the importance of addressing and overcoming systemic injustices. Her story is a profound addition to the anthology, offering readers an insightful and impactful narrative that challenges and inspires. 

“I Wanted to Quit Too” is available now on amazon.

students visiting ATS Euromaster

In the last two weeks, the Motor Vehicle department at Weston College has been working closely with Dominic Pinfield, Centre Operations Manager at ATS Euromaster in Weston-Super-Mare, to provide valuable opportunities for our students. ATS Euromaster offered two paid 6-month internships, one based in Weston and one in Taunton, to our learners. 

ATS Euromaster invited a group of our Level 2 and Level 3 Motor Vehicle learners to a site tour of their Weston-Super-Mare branch. This visit allowed students to experience firsthand the working environment, gain insight into the type of work they would be performing, and meet the rest of the team, which includes three former Weston College students who have successfully built careers in the industry after their education here.

Following the site visit, interested learners submitted their CVs and participated in formal interviews held at the South West Skills Campus. As a result, two candidates were selected and offered the paid internships.
