Following on from the success of last year’s ‘Love Our Colleges’ campaign, The City of Liverpool College will be joining institutes across the country next week to celebrate the fifth annual Colleges Week.
The campaign, which is hosted by the Association of Colleges (AoC), sees colleges, students, and businesses from across the country come together to celebrate the brilliant things colleges do, day in and day out to build communities, boost business and support individuals.
The College plays an essential role in the employment and learning infrastructure and culture in Liverpool, serving more than a third of all 16-18-year-olds in Liverpool, and educating almost 12,000 learners each year.
Supporting this year’s campaign theme, Staff – Students – Skills, throughout the week we will be putting the spotlight on the College’s recent success stories across a range of different subject areas, and capturing the factors that make colleges the incredible, transformative places they are.
We’ll also be speaking with current students at the College about their journeys and why they decided to pursue their studies in a college environment as opposed to the various other education options available to them.
Across our social media channels, we’ll be posting behind the scenes footage with staff members, showcasing the individuals who keep the cogs of our college turning, and taking a closer look inside some of our classrooms to see what goes on behind closed doors! Make sure you follow us on @COLCollege to keep up to date with the week’s events!
We will also be using the week to share information on the benefits of college education in the UK, as well as the College’s personal ambitions for the future as we continue to lead the way in being the College for Business across the region.
Elaine Bowker, CEO and Principal, said:
“Our College has played a vital role in the skills and education of thousands of students. It is an honour and a privilege to celebrate further education on a national platform like Colleges week.
“Love Our Colleges Week is a fantastic opportunity for us to celebrate not only our successes, but the important work of colleges across the country. Colleges play a vital role in our communities and in helping so many young people to learn and acquire new skills that will prepare them well for the world of work.”
Colleges week takes place from Monday 17th – Friday 21st October. You can find out more about the campaign, here.
