Wide-ranging support for students at New City College has been nationally recognised once again.
The college has reached AoC Beacon Standard and Commended Status in recognition of its highly effective and innovative response to the increased mental, wellbeing and anxiety issues of students, staff and the wider community during the Covid-19 pandemic.
New City College is the only further education college in the London region to have achieved this status in 2020.
The pandemic and the resulting lockdown in Spring 2020 stopped all business as usual in its tracks. It tested the creativity and flexibility of all organisations, including colleges. However, New City College reacted quickly, with carefully targeted activity to provide effective support.
