This project is about embedding sustainability into the student curriculum and into their and staff's lives at the College, focusing on waste management, energy and procurement to source equipment/resources from sustainable/local companies.
All Level 3 students have undertaken the Ascentis Environmental Sustainability Award and students from across the college have taken part in forums and online polls regarding sustainable issues to gain their views on what they would like to see take place within the College.
