Colleges Week 2022

To celebrate the fifth Colleges Week from 17-21 October we are going all out to make this the best celebration of further education yet.

This year we are focussing on Staff, Students and Skills as this is what makes a college. We will be focussing our activities, communications and influencing around these themes so watch this space.

Our #LoveOurColleges campaign has gone from strength to strength since 2018 and we will be continuing to promote this year-round campaign in the run up to and during Colleges Week so please continue to tag your content on social media.

Five ways to get involved in Colleges Week 2022

1. Shout about success

    We all know the amazing and transformational work colleges do day in day out, so let's make sure we shout about it. During Colleges Week, and throughout the run up, make sure to celebrate your staff and students.

    2. Use the hashtag

      Whether you are on Facebook, TikTok, Instagram, Twitter or LinkedIn, tag your content using the #LoveOurColleges and #CollegesWeek hashtags. AoC will be monitoring the hashtag and resharing lots of exciting content.

      3. Involve your stakeholders

        Colleges Week focusses the eyes of politicians, businesses and the media on the further education sector. It is a great opportunity to engage your MP(s), invite business leaders to campus and get stories in the local paper.

        4. Plan engaging activities

          In the run up to October, we will be sharing some ideas for activities you can host to engage your staff and students with Colleges Week. If you already have a brilliant idea then get it in the diary, and please let us know.

          5. #LoveOurColleges

            Share the love and support your local colleges.
