Love our Colleges

Dearne Valley College is proud to support the national ‘Love Our Colleges’ campaign running as part of Colleges Week from Monday 17th October to Friday 21st October.

Colleges Weeks is a brilliant opportunity to celebrate and highlight the opportunities Colleges can provide their students, and the driving force they can act as to affect positive change in the communities they serve. It illustrates the need for investment in the Further Education sector.

It is incredibly rewarding to see the life changing impact that our colleges have on the thousands of students, and apprentices every year. During the Love Our Colleges Week (17th – 24th October) we are celebrating our students, our staff and the skills that our students have and showcase, as well as the skills they learn from our staff. Our excellent relationship with employers and other external partners also play a big part in the skills our students learn and the development of an innovative curriculum to ensure our learners are industry ready.”
