Message from Principal James Hardiman – June 2020

To the Class of 2019 – 2020

Here at North Connaught College as we come to the end of printing and distributing examination results, this will bring to a close a 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. I am also mindful of our Beauty Therapy students who are not quite there yet, but all going well by Autumn will have got over the line.
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. 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.
March 2020 will be recorded in the stories we tell and recall about our time at North Connaught College as a time when our community pulled together and supported each other, and it shows our collegiality and kindness at its best. As it draws to an end, each of you should recognise and acknowledge what you have achieved.
On behalf of all the staff at NCC can I again congratulate the class of 2019 – 2020.
Thank you for taking this part of your journey with us at North Connaught College.
Best regards,

Meet Our Students

North Connaught College offers courses from Beauty Therapy to Healthcare to Business and Warehousing/Security. But its main focus is the ‘student’ voice. It is about their journey. Where they are coming from. Why they decided to return to education. Why they choose North Connaught College. And where they hope to go after completing their studies with us. It also highlights the qualities and supports of the College and also the diverse range of learners, which we welcome.
