Next week is the inaugral Colleges Week. The main aim of this initiative is to highlight the positive impact colleges have in education and local communities with the hope of encouraging the government to boost FE funding. Colleges Week will see colleges across the country hosting events to showcase all they do and raise awareness of the funding challenges that colleges face.

Joe Park, previously at Eggar's School, has this year been awarded a Darwin Scholarship. He explained what this entails and what it means for him and his studies in the future.

Following their participation in the Party in the Park held in Alton Town Gardens in June, organised by the Lions Club of Alton, the College Sports Department has received a donation from the Lions to contribute to new match kit.

The Alton College Foundation ceremony for second year students took place in the Wessex Arts Centre recently.  The Alton College Foundation introduced the awards to celebrate students who had shown outstanding achievement within their subjects during their first year of study. 

Politics, Law and Philosophy students recently took part in simulation Brexit negotiations on campus, a day-long process discussing a range of contentious issues surrounding the Brexit debate. 

Alton College is proud of its long-standing history of delivering high-quality academic and enrichment opportunities and for its innovative approach to education. We are delighted to continue in this tradition by announcing that from September 2019 we will be working with the Chelsea Football Club Foundation (CFCF).
