Stu­dent Par­ents & Car­ers Group

Claire Brookes is the Stu­dents’ Union Pres­i­dent at Not­ting­ham Col­lege. A full time High­er Edu­ca­tion Stu­dent who is also a mum of three. She knows how hard it can be for stu­dents who are par­ents or car­ers to bal­ance col­lege work and home life, espe­cial­ly dur­ing lock­down. This is why she has decid­ed to start a Stu­dent Par­ent and Car­er Group. This is a non-judge­men­tal space for these stu­dents to talk to oth­er stu­dent par­ents and car­ers, for peer sup­port and share ideas on bal­anc­ing home learn­ing and home school­ing. This group is also open to stu­dents who might be tak­ing care of sib­lings dur­ing lock­down, due to their par­ents hav­ing to work. 

The first meet­ing is on Thurs­day 4th Feb­ru­ary at 4pm. We will look at host­ing oth­er events too. Stu­dents who are inter­est­ed in being part of this group please com­plete the enrich­ment form here or email wellbeing@​nottinghamcollege.​ac.​uk.
