Today marks the last day of #CollegesWeek 2020 – and although there may have been fewer face-to-face, campus-based activities than normal, there has been no shortage of celebration and creativity.
We have compiled a small selection of the many ways in which colleges and their staff and students have showed their appreciation and that they #LoveOurColleges.
Bedford College principal Ian Pryce brought together a group of fellow FE leaders for his very own #LoveOurColleges anthem.
While on a musical theme, a number of colleges also contributed to a new Spotify playlist.
Whilst enjoying your #CollegesWeek Mocktails at 5pm, stick on the brand new #LoveOurColleges Spotify playlist, featuring a collection of songs, picked by colleges, that represent the best of FE.https://t.co/zCZPKVoRVf pic.twitter.com/K0DB0xY1GM— Association of Colleges (AoC) (@AoC_info) October 23, 2020
