Hello all,

As many of you are now aware, I've decided that it's time for me to move on from the College.
Since coming in to the role in January 2017, I feel as though the last 20 months have flown past, with some radical changes and developments taking place within the college. Every member of the team has worked incredibly hard during this period, to take what was a fledgling project forward into being a robust and indispensable service, that is continuing to develop. We've increased the number of Paid Tutors up to a full team of 10 (all amazingly skilled and experienced!), we've created a new Adminstrator role in the Core Team and have appointed a new fantastic Tutor Coordinator, we've moved offices to allow us more space to grow, and we've reached over 1000 individual Students in total! On top of all of this, we've also updated our branding, created a new website, conducted our first data analysis to measure our impact, opened a new spoke in Forensic Services, and have continued to design and deliver a brilliant range of courses. Phew!
It's because of all of this that I can feel confident that I'm leaving the college in very safe hands, and that it will continue to grow and develop over the next few years. I'm very proud to have been a part of the journey so far, and it's been a real privilege to work with such dedicated and interesting people. 
From next week, I'll be joining national youth charity, Young Enterprise, however I'll be watching the progress of the College with interest!
With very best wishes,
Laura Dennis
