Colleges Week 2021
This week is national Colleges Week and colleges throughout the country are taking the the opportunity to celebrate and shout about all of the brilliant things that colleges do, day in and day out to build communities, boost businesses, and support individuals.
This year’s theme is ‘get in, go further’ and we will be turning the spotlight on the important role our staff and students have within so many areas of our local community – sharing our recent community projects, showing the strength of our partnership with local employers and celebrating the achievements of our students both past and present.
“Colleges Week showcases exactly why further education holds the answers to some of the biggest issues facing all of us. Now more than ever we need highly skilled and well-educated workforces to deliver the economic recovery this government aspires to.
“Colleges Week this year is about celebrating the amazing work colleges do, educating 2.2 million people every year, including more than 600,000 16 to 18-year-olds. They hold the key to reducing skills gaps, combatting inequality, and providing better opportunities to disadvantaged communities. This week is about making our voices heard and campaigning with partners to make sure colleges continue to be a serious political, economic and social priority.”
Do check out our social media channels and see exactly why we are so proud of our students, our staff and our community.
