Carshalton College has been shortlisted in the following categories;
Support
Safety
Practical Learning
College Life
Facilities for Spare Time

The LOOP Awards will celebrate the achievements and areas of excellence of LOOP partner colleges. One such institution is Lewisham Southwark College where Jayne Morgan, Assistant Principal Quality and Improvement said: “We’re so proud to be hosting the first ever LOOP Awards! We’ve been involved from the very start of this exciting and innovative project which students and the college have benefited from. LOOP training upskills students, makes them partners in improvement and gives the college valuable insights into their experience.”

Our Student Support Team help encourage students to leave feedback about their experience at Carshalton College on LOOP, as part of the College’s Learner Voice Scheme to enable student’s opinions and ideas to be heard.

The event will be attended by staff and students from FE institutions across multiple regions in the UK. The evening will be hosted by members of LOOP’s charismatic Student Board and feature the stories behind partner Colleges and their journey to improve services for students.

LOOP Student Board member Faisa Mohammed said ” My journey began with LOOP in training at college and now I am one of the judges for the first LOOP Awards! LOOP has allowed me to be: confident, proactive, creative, empowered, inspiring and really feel a part of something big. From launching LOOP, to leading training with students, I have gained and learned so much.”
