It's time for change from September when we launch our new College day which will benefit the health and learning capacity of our students. The new day will mean students have up to 50 hours more teaching each year, start lessons at 10am and have greater scope for enrichment activities. 

Come along to the Creative Visual Arts Department to see the CTEC Level 2 Art & Design students' end of year Pop Up Shop Exhibition. Lots of great work on display from talented art students in the Stevens Building, Room 517. The exhibition will be open Monday 22 - Friday 26 May, everyday from 10am-4pm. Open to the public - please sign in at reception.
