We are delighted to sponsor Siddiqui Education with this fantastic project
The purpose of the project is to allow deaf children and families a fun interactive experience which aims to help them:
The core mission of Siddiqui Education is to support school in bridging the attainment gap and building aspirations for disadvantaged students compared to non-disadvantaged students. They believe this can be done by developing children's essential life skills through engaging workshops which emulate a real-life television and business environment.
Baasit Siddiqui is the director of Siddiqui Education. He is an experienced teacher who has worked on Channel Four's BAFTA and NTA winning show "Googlebox" for over seen years. He has now combined his skills, experiences and connections in education, television and business to provide fun, thought provoking and engaging workshops and competitions, designed to build aspirations and skills of those students who would really benefit from the life lessons and skills he is keen to share.
Baasit has delivered workshops to children in over seventy schools nationally, delivered teacher training and keynote sessions to schools, businesses and charities around effective strategies to support social mobility. Baasit has expanded his reach by creating digital versions of his workshops and competitions which have allowed whole families to be involved.
"Let's Pitch It Family (BSL Interpreted)" is a national competition where by children work with their families to research, plan and record a two minute video to promote their idea for a new Television show concept.

The BSL interpretations have been created by Sarah Gatford from www.sarahgatford.co.uk. Sarah is an experienced BSL interpreter who works with businesses to help them achieve gold standard access for deaf people.
