We’re excited to announce that Colleges Week 2021 will take place Monday 18 October - Friday 22 October.
Colleges Week is a chance to celebrate and shout about all of the brilliant things that colleges do, day in and day out to build communities, boost businesses, and support individuals. In previous Colleges Weeks we’ve had marches on Parliament, top trending topics, songs, dances, cocktail classes and so much more. We have lots of plans and ideas which we will share with you soon but for now all we’re asking is that you get the dates in your calendar.
Colleges Week is a key part of the Love Our Colleges campaign, and is a partnership between Association of Colleges (AoC), National Union of Students (NUS), Association of College and School Leaders (ASCL), University and Colleges Union (UCU), GMB, TUC, National Education Union (NEU) and UNISON. This year it will be more important than ever as the Skills & Post 16 Education Bill goes through Parliament and the country is re-shaped post-furlough and post-pandemic.
So for now, save the date, keep an eye on the Love Our Colleges website, and get planning your activities. We’ll be sharing lots of comms and resources in the run up to Colleges Week 2021, so if you’re not on our mailing list but would like to be, let us know. We would also love to hear about your ideas or what you’re planning – you can contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
