It’s Colleges Week, an awareness campaign to highlight the superb work undertaken and the challenges faced by the further education sector.
All week we’re showcasing the work of the College, to help raise awareness that the sector and the fact that it is at the centre of the biggest issues and challenges of present times, and is central to rebuilding the economy post-Brexit and through COVID-19, strengthening communities, and supporting people through some of the toughest challenges we have faced.
Today’s theme is supporting industry to adapt and grow.
