    Mental Health Awareness Week is happening between 9 to 15 May 2022.

    The official theme is ‘loneliness’ and, across the week, we encourage you to build meaningful connections with your friends, family, colleagues and communities.

    With this in mind we will be making some noise to encourage those connections within our own community here at college.

     With exams approaching, and the end of year in site we are aware that stress levels amongst students and staff are hitting new highs.

    In a world where mental health is now being recognized and talked about, we want to make next week about helping each other to make that difference, understanding our connections, can help us to know where to go for help, and how we can help ourselves.

     Please Join us at Enfield On Tuesday 10th and Look out for similar events at your campuses through out the week.

    Tuesday 10th of May – 11am – 2pm in A1/2.

  • Deaf Awareness

    Deaf Awareness Week will take place from 2 to 8 May 2022. This year we’re using the week to celebrate deafness.

    There are over 50,000 deaf children and young people in the UK, the National Deaf Children's Society will be sharing their deaf story with us. They've called it, #MyDeafStory.

    We want to know what they love about being deaf, what being deaf means to them, and what might surprise people about being deaf.

    By sharing their stories, we aim to empower and inspire other deaf children and young people to celebrate their deaf identity and feel confident with their deafness. Check this link to find out more and hear the stories: https://www.ndcs.org.uk/ ;

    This year the theme is Happiness for all, Ukraine - to support the Ukrainian Crises and the statement below has been issued by the United Nations International Day Of Happiness Founder Jayme Illien: 

    If we lose democracy, if we lose freedom, there will be no global goals for sustainable development, and there will be no global happiness or well-being for all. So let the word go forth at this time and place in the great story of all of us, that the 2022 International Day of Happiness theme, Happiness For All, Ukraine, is a call to action to all people, all nations, the United Nations, and all humanity to stand with the people, government, and country of Ukraine, and ultimately, to stand for the happiness of all civilization, and all humankind.
