To the Class of 2020 – 2021
Here at North Connaught College of Further Education as we come to the end of printing and distributing examination results, this will bring to a close another very unusual College and academic year for us all.
The end of examinations, albeit in this case alternate assignments for most of you, is always a time of relief and celebration for our students. On this occasion our staff join in that relief and celebration too, as we look back on a job well done.
When the COVID-19 pandemic first became apparent we had no idea of the disruption that it would bring. How would teaching continue? How would exams and assignments be completed? It seemed overwhelming, and for some of you it was. You had the opportunity to experience blended learning for the first term, but since Spring all of your learning was online. And yet, due to our collective determination and flexibility, we have overcome those challenges not without difficulty but with distinction. We thank our learners for their patience, flexibility and spirit. We also commend our staff for their hard work and dedication on ensuring that the College year was completed. It is always our objective to put the learner first, as a matter of principal and purpose.
On behalf of all the staff at NCC can I again congratulate the class of 2020 – 2021.
Thank you for taking this part of your journey with us at North Connaught College of Further Education.
On a final note, for anybody considering a return to education or learning a new skill, check out our Virtual Open Evening (click on the orange tab on the Home page), where you will have the opportunity to meet with our staff and discover about the different courses and supports available here at the College.
