#LoveOurColleges Week of Activity

Monday 13 May 2019

This academic year the AoC (Association of Colleges) launched the Love Our Colleges campaign to raise awareness of the important role colleges play in education.

From Monday 13 to Friday 17 May, the AoC is holding a week of activities around the Love Our Colleges campaign. During this week Richmond upon Thames College will be joining other colleges across the UK to make some noise on social media to raise the profile of this campaign.

Chief Executive and Principal of Richmond upon Thames College, Robin Ghurbhurun, will be speaking to students about the college’s new building development and the opportunities that will come with this. Not only will it be an innovative new space for learning, it will also be a hub for local businesses and will provide many opportunities to the local community.

As the Love Our Colleges campaign highlights; college education is incredibly important to the country’s economic growth. Colleges provide options that schools cannot and prepare young people for the work place and further study. 2.2 million people receive their education and training from colleges every year, so it is vital that the further education sector is properly recognised.

Zac Goldsmith MP also recently visited the college and said of the trip: “The new-build college will be truly inspirational and I am encouraged to see that so much of the building work is already completed. It is fantastic to have this facility in Richmond; it is a visionary space with lots of room for collaboration between different departments as well as local businesses. I look forward to visiting the college again when the campus is complete.”
