The Stockport College Community Partnership has been an integral part of the College’s response to Coronavirus (COVID-19). As the region moves forward from the pandemic, returning to work or education and rebuilding the local economy, the partnership continues to enable much needed support for the college’s students, their families ?and the wider community.
Michelle McLaughlin, Student Engagement and Student Voice Lead at Stockport College said:
The short film being launched is a celebration of our college and the Community Partners we have been proud to work with before and throughout the pandemic and shows that together we can achieve and overcome any obstacles to help to create thriving communities.
“The partnership is also an essential part of the College’s wider strategy around community cohesion and inclusion and will ensure that we remain an institution rooted in the needs and interests of the localities we serve. As a community we have the aim to join together and become One Stockport.”
Stockport College has developed the Community Partnership with the council and over twenty local organisations and businesses. As well as working collectively to enhance the College offer for students, the Partnership also aims to ensure opportunities for learning go far beyond the College walls enabling students to give back to the community by developing the skills and confidence to contribute to the social and economic prosperity of the town.
Andrew Gwynne, MP for Reddish & Denton said:
Through the Community Partnership Stockport College plays such an important role in the life of the borough. This has never been more apparent than through this pandemic, when so many in our community have faced real hardship. Everyone involved in this work should be really proud and I know that the College will continue to play this vital role even as life starts to return to normal.”
