News: Col­leges Week 2021: MPs show their sup­port for Not­ting­ham College

Colleges Week 2021 Get In Go Further

This Col­leges Week we are shin­ing the spot­light on the great things that hap­pen at Not­ting­ham Col­lege every day and the impor­tance we play in our com­mu­ni­ty, as we con­tin­u­ous­ly work to meet learn­er and stake­hold­er needs. We sup­port thou­sands of stu­dents each year to move onto the next stages of their lives; whether that’s employ­ment, fur­ther study, or re-train­ing for a new career.

Sev­er­al of Not­ting­ham and Nottinghamshire’s local MPs vis­it­ed the Col­lege last month. Nadia Whit­tome (MP for Not­ting­ham East), Lil­ian Green­wood (MP for Not­ting­ham South), Alex Nor­ris (MP for Not­ting­ham North) and Ruth Edwards (MP for Rush­cliffe) rep­re­sent many of the areas our stu­dents come from and it’s great to have their sup­port as we shared with them our ambi­tions to meet learn­er and local stake­hold­er needs.

The MP’s vis­it­ed our brand-new City Hub had the oppor­tu­ni­ty to meet with our stu­dents and staff, tour our facil­i­ties and get a deep­er insight into what Not­ting­ham Col­lege life at Not­ting­ham Col­lege and every­thing we have to offer.

We were delight­ed to wel­come our local MPs to the City Hub and allow them to see our new first class learn­ing facil­i­ties, talk to our learn­ers about life and learn­ing at Not­ting­ham Col­lege. The vis­it was a fan­tas­tic oppor­tu­ni­ty for the col­lege lead­er­ship team to out­line con­tin­ued ambi­tions of the col­lege to meet learn­er and local stake­hold­er needs.

As part of their vis­it, the MPs took the oppor­tu­ni­ty to pro­vide our jour­nal­ism stu­dents with some hands-on expe­ri­ence by tak­ing part in a mock press con­fer­ence. Our Cater­ing and Hos­pi­tal­i­ty stu­dents host­ed our MPs in Fletch­ers, our com­mer­cial train­ing restau­rant and there were also vis­its to oth­er course areas includ­ing per­form­ing arts, dig­i­tal design, ear­ly years, sci­ence, and den­tal technology.
