As the country marked a year since the first Covid lockdown began, colleges across the UK remembered all those who have been lost to the pandemic.
Meanwhile, apprenticeships and skills minister Gillian Keegan went to visit South Devon College to see the skills boot camps in action, and the #JoyFE community celebrated its first birthday.
