Get in, go further, during National Colleges Week 2021

Love Our Colleges Week 2021

East Sussex College is calling on its local communities to get in and go further during this year’s Love Our Colleges Week.

Love Our Colleges Week 2021 (Monday 18th to Friday 22nd October) aims to celebrate the brilliant things that colleges do, day in, day out, to build communities, boost businesses, and support individuals.

This year’s theme for Love Our Colleges Week 2021 is ‘Get in, Go further’. The ‘Get in’ element of the theme focuses on showcasing the positive things that happen within the college on a day-to-day basis, for example, the courses, the staff, the facilities. ‘Go further’ is all about proudly sharing the journeys that the college has helped provide students with, including alumni’s and progression to the next stages of their life/careers.

Throughout Love Our Colleges Week this year, ESC’s social platforms will be sharing messages from students, positive stories and providing advice for anyone looking to retrain, as we head into the new normal after the Coronavirus pandemic.

East Sussex College is extremely proud of its students and will be sharing some of their inspiring stories throughout the week. ESC Lewes Performing Arts alumni, Anubis Finch, has followed her passion for musical theatre appearing in the brand new series of hit BBC show, RuPaul’s Drag Race UK.

Archie White became ESC’s oldest ever graduate at 96 years old after completing a Fine Art degree at the College. Archie is a prime example that it’s never too late to educate at ESC.

East Sussex College Beauty Therapy student, Mya Hitchcock, reached the 2021 WorldSkills national finals! Mya will be hoping to emulate the success of ESC alumnis, Rebecca West and Kaiya Swain, who were both crowned the world’s best young beauty therapist after winning the gold medal in the WorldSkills Finals in previous years.

These inspiring students are just a few of the positive examples that the College will be sharing on social platforms throughout Love Our Colleges Week 2021.

Rebecca Conroy, CEO of East Sussex College, said, “We’re really proud to once again support the Love Our Colleges campaign. It is a fantastic opportunity to share and celebrate the opportunities we can offer young people and adults in our local communities.”

Love Our Colleges Week takes place from Monday 18th - Friday 22nd October and you can get involved by following the college social media accounts on @WeAreESCG on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, LinkedIn and YouTube. Please use #LoveOurColleges, #CollegesWeek and #LoveESC in any posts you share.
