I am delighted to welcome you to the new academic year at Derby College Group (DCG). It has been a busy summer at DCG enrolling new students online and preparing for the new academic year ahead.
For Year 1 students these first weeks of term are classed as an induction period. Your child will have received an introduction to their study programme, been given access to an online student handbook, their own Derby College email address and access to our online learning space, Moodle. They will also have been allocated a personal coach who will work with them throughout their time at College and help ensure they achieve a positive destination after their study programme.
We hope you enjoy reading your monthly e-newsletter from Derby College Group. MANDIE STRAVINO OBE Chief Executive
