LOVE OUR COLLEGE
Last week was LoveOurColleges week, over the course of 7 days all 266 colleges across the UK aim to raise awareness of the pivotal place further education has among both local communities and societies as a whole!
Educating over 2.2 million people each year, further education establishments provide the vital step between school and either university or the world of employment. Two thirds of young people now take their A-levels of BTECs in a college environment, as opposed to progressing on to a sixth form. Whether it’s through top-class technical education, basic skills or lifelong learning, colleges help people of all ages and backgrounds to make the most of their talents and ambitions. Rooted in local communities, they are crucial in driving social mobility and providing the skills to boost local and regional economies.
