Reaseheath – Message from Marcus Clinton

Welcome from Marcus Clinton Principal and CEO, Reaseheath College and University Centre

“Coronavirus has affected us all in so many ways, not least in the loss of our rural shows and events.
But the land based sector is used to changing and evolving and its resilience, creativity and innovation has continued to shine through.

Reaseheath College and its University Centre adapted at pace to the situation by fast forwarding its digital strategy and moving to on-line delivery so we could continue to offer the same high level of education, training and support for students and staff. Students have remained engaged and we are delighted that the vast majority will achieve their qualifications this summer.

One of the positives from Covid-19 is that there is heightened awareness of the value of the specialist technical education we offer. Employers need staff with specialist skills and the attitudes, attributes and resilience to drive productivity. They also value transferable skills that can be applied to fast changing work environments which constantly evolving with ever more technology and innovation.

This applies very much to the sectors we serve and Reaseheath will continue to ensure our students meet this demand, and as such, secure great futures. The importance of agriculture, food production and associated industries is recognised by our government and supported by initiatives such as the new T-Levels and more robust standards for apprenticeships. As well as being employer-led, these new qualifications offer students a clear line of sight into the world of work and the exciting jobs and careers which await them.

We are sorry we cannot attend the Royal Cheshire Show this year, but we are looking forward to bringing an even bigger and better stand to the show in 2021, when Reaseheath will be celebrating its 100th birthday.”
