News: Huge College effort to help frontline workers

Please note: This news story may contain information that is no longer current or up to date.

From today (24th July) face coverings are mandatory in lots of public settings (for those who aren’t exempt). Over the past few months students and staff from across the College have come together, using their skills and spare time to sew face coverings, and other protective items which were donated to frontline and key workers across Nottinghamshire!

Here are just a few of the amazing volunteering efforts we’ve covered over the past few months:

Amy Gathercole from our Marketing Team was one of three women who kick-started the Nottingham arm of For the Love of Scrubs.

Together we are Nottingham's College

We are proud to support our students and help them become the best they can be. In these last few months, we’ve collected some amazing stories from across the college community.

We’ve heard from ex-students who are proudly working as nurses on the frontline saving lives, and employers we work with, who are transforming their businesses to support local people through tough times. We’ve also seen students raise money, create community tributes and lead their friends through mental health challenges.
