Croydon College and Coulsdon College welcome students back

Croydon College and Coulsdon College welcomed students back to the classroom as they embraced the ‘new normal’.
The Colleges have seen a rise in the number of applicants this year, with Coulsdon College now oversubscribed and only accepting students for next academic year 2021/22 and Croydon College also oversubscribed on most courses with just a few spaces left for those still looking to enrol this academic year.
 
Strict measures have been put in place to make the Colleges Covid Secure, ensuring all students and staff are safe while on site. With the Colleges also prepared to deliver an online learning offer should a lockdown occur again.
 
Induction videos were also created to allow new students the ability to learn about their new College, before stepping through the doors.
 
Caireen Mitchell, CEO and Principal, Croydon College: “It has been so nice to see students back in the building and embracing learning. The staff at the College have been exceptional and made sure that we were ready to both welcome students and keep our college community safe. We are very much looking forward to the next academic year and supporting all our students to achieve their potential.  
 
Richard Beales, Principal, Coulsdon College: “We are so excited to be back in the classroom with the students, while offering them a safe learning environment as well as the ability to offer remote learning and support. To have had so many young people joining us this year has been a great pleasure and we look forward to seeing them grow and succeed during their time here.”
