News & Events

The College’s Level 2 OCR Administration (Business Professional) class has recently been undertaking a number of hands-on practical tasks to bridge the gap between the learning taking place in class and the application of these skills in the business world.

They are currently working on a unit called ‘Organise a Business Event’ where they plan a fictitious event from start to finish. They first listed the requirements of the event and identified three possible venues in Gibraltar. They then prepared a site visit sheet detailing all the requirements and a comprehensive list of questions for them to ask the venue. Over the past week we have been out of the classroom visiting these venues. The Rock Hotel, the Sunborn and the John Mackintosh Hall were very welcoming and kindly showed our students around all their event spaces.

The students seemed to relish this opportunity to have a change of scenery and really took charge of the situation. They were very comprehensive in their questioning and made sure that every aspect of the event was discussed. As their class teacher, I was extremely impressed and proud of their professional conduct and behaviour whilst at these venues.
 

Introduction by Miss Nicola Howes, Young Enterprise Coordinator (ag)

"All young people should be given the best chance for a rewarding future in work and life – no matter where they start their journey". This is Young Enterprise’s mission statement, which very much resonates with the ethos in our Gibraltar College.

Young Enterprise empowers young people to harness and develop their employability skills, as well as personal and business skills. Whilst academic achievement is important, Young Enterprise helps students develop skills required to succeed in the workplace. For example, 81% of students stated that the Company programme helped them develop confidence in their ability and 74% agreed it helped improve their communication and cultivate resilience.

Garden of Thoughts (A Collection of Works on Mental Health)The world seems to on many occasions focus on the harm and negative effects of mental health on society, especially our young. Much is said statistically; cold clinical studies are made; and at times headline grabbing news items are reported carelessly and thoughtlessly. Yet, has anyone truly listened? Have many asked those experiencing mental health issues, for a true and sincere insight into their world? Do many of us even truly understand, or grasp the full picture against the backdrop of growing stigma and increasingly scaremongering media coverage that blurs our reasoning and shuts our eyes? In a world that often seems to favour shock value over real value, one hopes the following will provide a welcome respite and a more dignified connection with mental health issues and those who speak about it so strongly and eloquently.

This year we are celebrating our 6th Award Ceremony, probably our favourite event in the College’s calendar, and, I am sure other members of staff will agree with me, one which fills us with pride to be a working at the Gibraltar College.  The aim of the Award Ceremony is not just to praise academic achievement, as that is already catered for in August when students receive their results, but to recognize and celebrate the hard work and commitment that the students of the Gibraltar College have demonstrated in their studies.

This could not have been done without the support of the staff and the continuous    generosity of the Gaggero Foundation, to whom we are extremely grateful.
