Message from our Principal
My name is Marcus Clinton and I’m the Principal of Reaseheath College and University Centre.
Firstly thank you for showing interest in becoming a student at University Centre Reaseheath this September.
Many of you will have been to open events on campus before the lock down and some of you will have attended virtual events since. I can assure you that all the staff who would normally be available to give you excellent support and answer all questions are still available and carrying out that role daily. There is also a wealth of information on this website.
It has been a challenging period recently but I have been impressed with all our staff and students in the way they have responded. Learning has continued and there have been high levels of engagement and positive feedback. That is one of the hallmarks of Reaseheath, the excellent staff that we have and the desire to give our students the best possible learning experience and the highest levels of support.
In addition to that we have our beautiful campus which is just such a lovely environment within which to study, not to mention the £80 million investment in superb specialist facilities over the last ten years.
However, what is absolutely key is that all our expertise, support and facilities lead to meaningful outcomes. That is why our mission statement is Industry Focused, Career Ready. We believe passionately in ensuring our courses have a clear line of sight to the jobs and careers which are there in the sectors we support. These remain exciting times in our sectors with ever more innovation, technology and new types of jobs appearing all the time. At Reaseheath we know the importance of ensuring students have the transferable skills and employability skills that keep our graduates current and able to adapt as their chosen industries adapt and this is exactly what employers require.
We are proud of the success of our alumni and students graduating from FE and HE and apprenticeships all have a high track record of positive outcomes and onward destinations. Employers hold the college in high regard and know they can rely on our students to be an asset to their businesses.
This coming year will be no different, students will still receive high levels of learning and support. We will ensure work is carried out safely and whatever blend of activity we are able to carry out will still prepare students for success and development. We are hopeful this will be as near normal as possible and will increasingly improve. We recognise access to practical facilities and campus life is important. Students will also be able to retake Maths and English GCSE as they do now and students make good progress with these areas at Reaseheath.
So in the meantime, please make use of all the information and staff available to assist you as you prepare to join the college in September.
I and all the staff very much look forward to welcoming you to the Reaseheath Family in September and playing our part in helping you achieve success and positive outcomes in your chosen area.
