This past year has been difficult for so many people in so many different ways. Sutton College students and tutors rose to the challenge though, with many students taking to online studies for the first time or when able, coming back on to site to a different centre following new Covid-19 safety restrictions.
Sutton College students are regularly asked to evaluate their learning and many feedback with positive comments and experiences and their thoughts on this lockdown year. Classes provided routine, social contact even if online and, in the words of one student below, ‘a lifeline to seeing other people and a bit of normality.’
Feedback from Sutton College students can be found below:
‘A brilliant teacher and an absolute asset to Sutton College. She went above and beyond her line of duties during this difficult time. The online support from her was outstanding and she brought the class closer together when we were let back into college.’

‘As an over 70 I have not ventured far and the class is a lifeline to seeing other people and a bit of normality, as well as continuing my learning.’
‘It is great to be motivated each week. Thanks to the tutors and staff who have made this possible. I hope the online option will remain whilst the uncertainties exist.’
