Student Experience Commitment 2017/18

SECLogo.pngThe College has been through a period of significant change over the last three years. Following the Governing Body resolution that the College is to close after 2017/18 the pace of this change is bound to accelerate further.
There will be very few students taking modules in 2017/18, which inevitably will make for a different environment for your studies. However, throughout this period the College’s priority is to support you to reach your potential and complete your studies successfully.
