The College is only open to our most vulnerable students (including those on EHCPs, or who are in care or have a social worker) and the children of key workers. All lessons will continue to run virtually for all students. The College opens at 9am. Please notify us before 10.30am if you wish to access the College past 12 noon so we can ensure facilities and access are available. The government has published a letter explaining how the summer grades will be calculated. The letter has been emailed to you and a link is in the news section of this website.

ECHO Ambassadors Deliver Inspirational Training Session

Posted on 28th January 2015

The Training Team: Mand, Ali, Linds, John and Bev with students and staff following their training session

The College was lucky enough to receive a one-off opportunity in December when ECHO Ambassadors delivered a training session to our students.

ECHO (a charity working with Adults with Learning Disabilities) have developed an Ambassadors Trainers session where the adults with disabilities actually run the session. The aim is to ‘find out how to help the person you support be more confident and to be more aware of the things that could knock someone’s confidence’ – very useful for those considering supporting someone with any form of disability. The session lasted for one hour.

Everyone gained a great deal from this inspiring event. It was fun, thought provoking, interactive and hugely beneficial.

We hope the funding continues and that the Careers Department can invite the Ambassadors back in to College to train more staff and students, especially those considering a career in the health care professions, education and social services.
