Be yourself; Everyone else is already taken.
— Oscar Wilde.
This is always an exciting time of the year for us in education: the new batch of students will be walking through our doors: nervous, excited, apprehensive, keen, enthusiastic. And that’s just the staff! I’m sure the students will be feeling these emotions too, alongside one or two of their own.
It might be the first step on their journey entering our doors to complete an HND or FdA course; it might be a follow on Top up course – and, this time next year, we’ll be adding in a third stage!
We are currently writing our induction programmes; these are key on the students’ journey. They help students to settle in quickly, to meet many of the key people, to understand how the college operates (from the location of the toilets all the way through to its curricular and extra-curricular activities and support programmes).
So welcome to them all (and welcome to all you avid blog readers); let’s step out together to a bright and glorious future!
We all have a hand in writing our own futures
