The College has devised a scheme to enable more students with travel costs so we are offering a subsidised travel scheme for full-time Further Education (FE) students studying at the College in September 2011.
The proposals mean that in place of the free college bus that used to run from Bingham and East Leake, full-time eligible students will get subsidised travel passes meaning bus travel could cost from as little as 55p per day! This will enable more students from across the conurbation to get to college sites.
The scheme is being run by Student Services so please contact them direct for more information on 0115 914 6414.
On the 1st September South Nottinghamshire Academy replaced the old Dayncourt School in Radcliffe on Trent with the College acting as the main sponsor. Term starts on Wednesday 7 September. See their website for more information www.southnottinghamshireacademy.org
On Monday 25 July, a former staff member and former student of the College swam the 23 miles that is the English Channel in British record time of 9 hours 58 minutes. South Nottingham College is the main sponsor of the project which is named Channeling Positivity.
Kate Vines and Justine Drury undertook this amazing feat to raise £15,000 for the Teenage Cancer Trust, a cause voted for by our student cohort in September 2010. The money raised will be used by the Teenage Cancer Trust to help build a dedicated 3-bed Teenage Cancer rehabilitation unit at the Nottingham Queens Medical Centre.
You can still make a donation on-line to the charity here www.justgiving.com/channelingpositivity- the fundraising currently stands at over £10,000 so please support this amazing feat by giving as generously as you can to help us to reach our £15,000 target.
It's not too late to enrol...
