Hardship Bursary Funds
The Trust Board supports students and families in financial difficulties by providing targeted Bursaries for short periods of time. Additional donations will enable us to extend the assistance provided from the investment income of these funds.
Over the last 3 years the College provided financial support for over 50 families who are experiencing financial hardship. Thanks to this fund and the support it has provided, these students have been able to continue their education at the College.
Active Learning Hub Equipment
Active learning hubs in the Goodfellow Centre provide students with opportunities to imagine, play, create, do and learn. With the right tools, training and inspiration students are free to push boundaries of what is possible. Rich in contemporary technologies, active learning hubs provide a free-to-fail, safe and supportive learning environment where the only limits are a student’s imagination, drive and curiosity. Inherently collaborative, active learning hubs embrace design thinking bringing ideas to reality.
We would like to add a desk-top laser cutter to the 3D print hub we have and create new hubs that engage in different ways e.g. wearable tech hub where we would add a sewing machine, vinyl printer, soldering kit and associated chips.
You can read more here about how our students use the Goodfellow Centre in this article published in the September 2019 edition of Interface Magazine.
