Businesspeople urged to champion Made at Stoke on Trent College campaign

1 min read

Stoke on Trent College has launched a new alumni campaign to celebrate the achievements of former learners and to inspire current students and members of the community. 

Made at Stoke on Trent College aims to showcase the city it serves as one of makers, crafts and creativity as well as the journey and success of those who have studied at the further education organisation over the years. 

It also aligns itself to the famous backstamp found on ceramic ware across the globe ‘Made in Stoke on Trent’. 

Those joining the alumni programme can choose how they’d like to get involved in championing the work of the College.  

Opportunities include receiving a quarterly newsletter, guest speaker slots, networking events, providing work experience and many other activities.

Lisa Capper MBE, Principal and CEO said “We know many of our former students have progressed to achieve significant accolades in their vocational or chosen specialism and have achieved personally.   Some have taken up important roles in business or public life.  

“This campaign will highlight their journey and seek to inspire our current and potential younger students and those who wish to return to learn.   Our alumni play such an important role in showing what is possible to those who are still on their career journeys. 

“Made at Stoke on Trent College will recognise the contribution and legacy of alumni across the city and beyond.”

As part of the campaign, members of the business community and those who have studied at the college over the years are asked to share their memories of the time at the College.   

The campaign is already gaining support, with Daniel Flynn Chief Executive of YMCA North Staffordshire and many other alumni agreeing to participate in the programme to show their support for the College.  

Daniel said: “I’m proud that I went to Stoke on Trent College and I’m proud that it gave me the opportunities it did. I’ve got lifelong mates that I met at the College, and most of the people I keep in touch with have done really well for themselves.”
