Paving the way in education

When you educate a woman you educate a nation - Malcolm X

About Mia Morris

One woman dynamo with irrepressible energy and tenacity who is not afraid to tell it like it is Mia Morris set up Well Placed Consultancy having worked in Regeneration, Public Relations, Event Management, Training and Careers advice.

Mia is a great exponent of the present government mantra education, education, education. Attending seminars and reading professional journals are not enough for this diva. Mia founded the consultancy by using a myriad of skills in a given day; ‘I need to be able to handle PR, Training Tutoring Event Management and deliver my own brand of program specifically tailored for schools called 'Getting Wise To'.

‘I am keen to see how I can put my efforts into ensuring that our young people and their parents for that matter are aware how they can meaningfully contribute to society and the economy.

I will not rest on my laurels and do nothing. I am working on regeneration projects and negotiating with contractors and then being part of a team creating real solutions to training and skills building.’

During the last academic year we have delivered workshops with regards to the Black Cake across London, whereby young people found out more about the art of baking, and had direct experience of preparing a traditional Caribbean lunch. These workshops were done on behalf of Youth Aid who received funding from ‘Young Roots’ Heritage Lotteries.

We were also involved in delivering a series of workshops across 11 London boroughs with 23 secondary schools on behalf of the Access to Medicine Team based at King College London called Rising Stars in Medicine bringing together young people and African Caribbean Medical professions, so that young people can gain some insight and get a better understanding of job and training opportunities in Medicine and allied careers.

Mia’s consultancy is co-ordinating and delivering a series of workshops during Black History Month for [email protected] Family Learning, Ethnic Minority Advisory Service and Youth Inclusion Team Inspirations and Aspirations Black History Month in Schools and Community programme. This involves working with Islington's primary, secondary, libraries and youth service provision with a team of experienced writers, authors and storytellers. Plus organizing a Black History Month schools study day for a network of schools in Newham, co-ordinated by Forest Gate school and the Council’s Aiming High team. We also have heard from other schools keen for a program of activities.

At the time of writing Well Placed Consultancy have been instrumental in brokering a deal with London Underground Platform for Arts and Youth Aid (organizers of the 7th Caribbean Cake Event taking place 4th December at Goldsmith College and are currently researching for recipes, stories poems and anecdotes about the Black Cake)which will mean for the first time in Britain, Black History Month being recognized as public art with large posters across the central London tube work.

What propels Mia forever forward is the belief and the knowledge that she can make a serious contribution.
