It has been yet another year of hard work, determination and commitment, from both staff and students to secure success on a range of HE programmes. We are very excited that HE at the College is becoming more popular and with that, providing high quality education and training for many people looking to better themselves and indeed progress their careers. Tonight, we celebrate all awards in the New College theatre and look forward to the introduction of the HE Centre at the College from September 2018.”
