To cel­e­brate Col­leges Week we are high­light­ing the role col­leges have played in going above and beyond dur­ing the Covid-19 pandemic. 

We are incred­i­bly proud of the role Not­ting­ham Col­lege, our stu­dents and our staff have played through­out the pan­dem­ic, and over the past few months we’ve col­lect­ed some amaz­ing sto­ries from across the col­lege com­mu­ni­ty.

We’re par­tic­u­lar­ly proud of our health and social care stu­dents; who have used the skills learned on their col­lege cours­es and tak­en them to the front­line, work­ing in local care homes, health care set­tings and with vul­ner­a­ble adults and old­er people. 

Here’s some of their stories…

I am a Senior Health­care Assis­tant at a local care home. Dur­ing the pan­dem­ic I have been going to work and help­ing old­er peo­ple, pro­vid­ing them with med­ica­tion, giv­ing them per­son­al care and keep­ing their fam­i­lies updat­ed and involved over Skype and WhatsApp.
