Week 2 – This week has seen the start of our internal work placements. The hospitality group were lucky enough to kick start there session with a talk from Clare Mitchell, an Events Manager, who has helped organise events at the Golf Open and Ascot.

It is wonderful to see what our learners get up to outside of College, from playing football, Hockey, mini Golf and Isaac being Best Man at his brother wedding.

The Enterprise team are collecting tin cans ( rinsed with labels removed) please bring them into College and leave them at Reception.

Week 1 After a fairly chilly Easter break we were thrilled to welcome back those learners who had been shielding since Christmas. The red carpet was rolled out and there was a such a buzz around the College.

Our first trip in several months saw some learners heading to Trinity Theatre. They took part in a theatre workshop and found out about careers in the Arts Sector.

Next week sees the start of our internal work placements. These will focus on employability skills in Landscape gardening & Horticulture, Hospitality & Catering and Art & Enterprise.

Week 2 – Its been wonderful to see so many of our learners back in College, we are so impressed how quickly they have settled back into college life and are embracing their learning. For those who remain at home we are so proud of your resilience and perseverance with your remote learning. The Enterprise team have been working well as part of a team making seed bombs ready to sell; they are proving very popular. Red Nose Day was a great success – everyone enjoyed watching Megan and Blake being ” gunged” with all sorts of horrible things. We are so pleased to have received our fantastic Jukebox – thank you to everyone who made this possible.

Week 1 – This weeks book choice comes from Eddie Dyja; The Boy, The Mole, The Fox and The Horse by Charlie Mackesy. Since it was published in 2019 it has brought comfort and joy to a global community trying to make sense of a ” new normal” induced by the pandemic. ” Always remember you matter, you’re important, you’re loved and you bring to this world things that no one else can”.
