Supported Learning students get creative for The Big Draw

Sixty students from City College Norwich’s Supported Learning courses got involved in a range of creative activities for The Big Draw 2016, thanks to the efforts of the Creative Pathways group who organised the event.

Creative Pathways researched, made resources and hosted the event for the whole of Supported Learning.  Each of the 6 students in the group chose an activity and showed the other students what to do, to encourage and ensure all could engage in whatever activity they wished to do.

Congratulations to our Higher Education Student of the Year

Joss Mullett, a degree student who analysed around 10,000 statistics in order to pinpoint times and places in London, at street level, when violence against young people is most likely to occur, has been named as City College Norwich’s Higher Education Student of the Year.

Mr Mullett, 21, from Beccles, who graduated with First Class honours on the BA in Leadership in Public Services, hopes that his work – described by his lecturers as “extraordinary” – will help the Metropolitan Police and the Greater London Authority in their efforts to reduce knife crime in the capital.
