As a City of Liverpool College student, your time here is about much more than just studying! We also want your spare time to be fun and rewarding.
We have a programme of exciting activities that you can get involved in, organised by both the Students’ Union and our dedicated Student Engagement team.
Throughout the year, a number of trips are organised to help you relax and make the most of your free time in college. Events such as the bi-annual Students’ Fair – where you can enjoy lots of fun activities, free food and giveaways – and popular day trips to places such as Chill Factore, Blackpool Pleasure Beach or The Trafford Centre.
Many trips are arranged at the students’ request, and we welcome your suggestions for different places to visit.
You can get involved in both Duke of Edinburgh and National Citizenship Service Awards during your time with us. Whichever you choose, there’ll be lots of opportunities to take part in a range of outdoor pursuits and activities as part of the programmes.
Best of all, the experiences gained will look great on your CV!
The Engagement team offers support and opportunities to anyone with a business start-up idea. This includes advice on the first stages needed to develop your business plan through referrals to the Liverpool Enterprise Hub. This could mean taking part in different enterprise days, inspiring guest speakers and workshops, as well as preparation for entry to both regional and national competitions.
There are a number of short personal development courses you can join throughout the year that will enhance your CV or application to university (UCAS). These courses are also great if you just want to try something different or learn a new skill, and may include sessions in Bee Keeping, First Aid and an Introduction to British Sign Language (BSL).
We provide a varied sports programme for all students of the College, which you can access through our membership scheme at a cost of £5.
The membership covers a full academic year and includes access to the multi gym and facilities, as well as a range of popular sports sessions, including basketball, football, dance and tennis.
If you think you have what it takes to represent your class on any platform, why not put yourself forward to become a student/class rep. If successful, you’ll attend regular meetings with management about how the College runs and get the chance to raise issues or concerns around how those decisions affect you and your fellow classmates.
Don’t worry, full training will be given, alongside the opportunity to take part in Rep conferences, so you’ll feel confident to carry out the duties required for this important learner role.
The Student Engagement team provides a range of volunteering initiatives that you can get involved in throughout the year. These include events such as supporting local food banks with food collections, an annual ‘Open House’ day for the homeless and the Marie Curie Daffodil Appeal.
