'Guided meditation - How to release stress and anxiety' 🧠 🦋

Today's Staff Wellbeing session was a lovely guided meditation to help release anxiety and stress. It was a great way to start the day and staff who attended commented on having a more focused, productive working day. Staff also chose a Positive affirmation card to write a message to someone to brighten their day.

Positive results all round!! 💫

Learners have been learning how to draw Chinese numbers and have written their date of birth using Chinese symbols.

They’ve had fun testing each other to see if others can read the symbols. 📚

Learners also had fun with the chop stick challenge. They found it quite difficult but it provided lots of laughs and encouragement provided by other learners 🥠 #EqualityandDiversity

On Friday 17th January 2020 - the Learn to Speak More English course started and the learners looked at some New Year’s Resolutions connected to their wellbeing.

They used modal verbs to describe what they ‘will, must or should’ do in 2020. They learnt different names for sporting activities and discussed what they ought to do more, or less, of to improve their wellbeing. They talked about food, exercise, family, leisure and, of course, learning English!

The course runs every Friday 10.00-13.00 for 11 weeks in our Sutton Campus!

Today is ‘Blue Monday’ 🔵

The theory goes that this is the time of year when we’re all cold, short of money and guilty that any New Year’s resolutions to get fit, drink more water etc. The concept was originally coined in 2004. The formula uses many factors including weather conditions, debt level, time since Christmas, time since failing our new year’s resolutions, low motivational levels and feeling of a need to take action.

Some simple ideas to banish Blue Monday:

🔹Think positively – reflect on all the things you do well, your strengths, things people value in you
🔹Go to a green space that will boost your mood
🔹Set aside some ‘me time’
🔹Exercise – be active e.g. walk, jog, go for a bike ride, swim
🔹Take time to talk to your family, friends, work colleagues.

We hope that you have a great day! 😄

Enrolment & Induction


To enrol on a course please phone 01623 441310 (Sutton Campus) or 01623 860304 (Ollerton Campus) or email

If you subsequently cannot attend the course you have enrolled on please let us know.  This will allow another student to take your place.



The Further Education courses offered by Academy Transformation Trust Further Education (ATTFE) College are for the purpose of education and learning rather than leisure or recreation. This means that all courses, tutors and students must follow the processes that are appropriate for a publicly-funded learning activity. For all courses this includes, for example, full induction, initial assessment and documented monitoring of learning progress by both tutor and student through individual learning plans. It also means that you must attend the first session of the course where full enrolment and induction takes place.

Your place on the course cannot be guaranteed unless you attend the first session.

You will be required to bring your National Insurance number with you so that you can fully complete your enrolment form. If you are claiming remission of fees you will also need to bring evidence to show that you are in receipt of an eligible benefit. Your latest letter from the benefit office will normally be acceptable.


  1. The right is reserved by ATTFE College to refuse, on educational or disciplinary grounds, to admit a learner to any particular course, or to remove a learner from a course.
  2. Learners are responsible for providing their own text books, writing materials, stationery, paints, brushes, timber, metal etc. Where ATTFE College supplies materials for purchase, these must be paid for at the time of purchase.
  3. No smoking is allowed on any of our premises, including open outdoor spaces within the campus boundaries or within 30 metres of the campus.

ATTFE College staff will do their utmost to assist and advise but they can in no way be held responsible for incorrect, late or non-entries. Late entries will not be accepted and responsibility for correct entry rests with the individual learner.
  9. No class will be permitted to commence unless at the discretion of ATTFE College a sufficient number of learners have been registered and enrolled. ATTFE College reserves the right to close the class if the number of learners does not justify its continuance, or for any other reason.
