It helps staff and students understand sustainability and social responsibility, gives a framework for actions, and celebrates acheivement.

Fairtrade Accrediation

We recieved a working towards status for Fairtrade Accreditation in 2022. We had previously achieved Full Fairtrade Accreditation in 2020 but as result of difficultes attributed to COVID-19 pandemic fell short in 2022 accreditation period. We are striving to achieving this level again in the next accreditation period in 2024.
