News: Celebrating a year of social action!

Students have been busy making a huge difference in the local community and beyond as part of their social action projects this year, proving there’s more to College life than the classroom.

Social action projects are embedded into our students’ tutorial programmes and help to build self-confidence as well as develop a range of core skills needed to succeed in work and life.

From fundraising and charity events to organising workshops, podcasts and symposiums! Collectively, our students have taken part in more than 40 social action projects this year and have raised over £3000 for charity, as well as donating hundreds of clothing, food and hygiene items to local organisations.

There are far too many to mention, so here are a few highlights, including a photo gallery below:

  • High Pavement students organised a sponsored walk around Rushcliffe Country Park raising more than £240 for youth charity Base 51.
  • Level 3 Dance students coordinated a food donation drive, collecting around 100 items for College students in need.
  • With support from our catering team, a group of Entry Level 3 students baked and sold cakes to staff and students, to raise money for Imara.
  • A group of hairdressing students did their bit for the environment when they volunteered their time to conduct a litter pick.
  • Health and Social Care students visited the Forever Stars Serenity Garden at Highfields Park, where they helped to maintain the garden, which supports bereaved families across the East Midlands.
  • Culture Day at City Hub campus
  • Level 4 Performing Arts students presented a pitch to UNISON for the installation of anti-bleed kits
  • TV and Film students hosted their own podcast around sexual harassment, with a guest speaker from the Imara organisation.
  • Raising awareness around period poverty with a stall at the City Hub, giving away reusable sanitary products.
  • Professional Chefs Diploma students raised £330 for The Burnt Chef Project with an event they held at our Fletchers Restaurant.

Well done to our Pastoral Tutors, who have worked incredibly hard to encourage and support our students to make these fabulous fundraisers and awareness days happen!
