Colleges Week

Date: 09 October 2023

The first week will start on Monday 9 October and focus on how colleges support local skills, labour markets and life chances. We will have a daily theme, focussed around a key sector which colleges support: Construction; Digital; Green Skills; Health and Social Care; Hospitality. The aim during the first week will be to get employers and local civic and political figures into colleges, with some suggested activities like a business breakfast, skills lunch, an employment exhibition. We will provide support and ideas for hosting these events.

The second week will start on Monday 16 October and will focus on the role colleges play in supporting the national economy and how with greater investment the sector can help boost the country’s flagging productivity levels. As in previous years, we will host a Parliamentary reception on the Wednesday (18 October). We are still five months away, but we will keep up a regular drumbeat of communications in the run-up to the event.

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.
