Croydon College is working with staff and pupils throughout October to mark Black History Month.

The College is not only celebrating the diversity of staff and students, with a spotlight on their achievements, but also marking the outstanding contributions people of African and Caribbean descent have made to the UK over many generations, including numerous displays highlighting key figures from history.

Departments across the college are hosting their own events throughout the month, including encouraging students to wear traditional homeland outfits and educate peers on their heritage, traditional dishes cooked up for students and staff to enjoy and hosting a debate about the importance of black role models in the sports industry.
