Student Intranet and Libraries
MyHub is our very own student intranet. You can access MyHub at https://colc.sharepoint.com/sites/MyHub.
To log into MyHub, you’ll need your college email address and password, which you’ll find in the email we sent you with your Welcome Pack.
There is a Learning Resource Centre (library) in each college building. Information on the service, resources and access to the LRCs is available here.
Progress Leader Team
Across all five sites we have a Student Hub which houses Progress Leaders, Work Experience officers, Careers Advice and Guidance and the Welfare and Wellbeing team.
This is a central space for all students to come and request support and discuss opportunities within their student journey. All 14–19-year-old students will be allocated a progress leader within their study programme who will support and challenge them during their time in college, to ensure all students develop into their true potential whilst with us. Make sure you come and find us within your first week so we can introduce ourselves and tell you how we can support you further.
