Welcome to the August newsletter

Dear ,

I'd like to give a special welcome to our newest members from the Class of 2020. You are now part of a supportive and friendly alumni community. We look forward to keeping in touch with you and hearing your success stories!

As the new academic year grows ever closer, campus is gradually coming to life. Over 100 newly recruited Prison Officers have already started their two-year leadership training as participants in the 'Unlocked Graduates' programme.

It will run from October 2020 until the end of February 2021 and will involve a minimum of three hours mentoring during this time.

Find out more about the scheme, expectations and timings on our mentoring webpage. If you would like to be a mentor please complete an application form by Friday 25 September and we'll then send you further information about training and requirements. 

Trinity on television

We were delighted to see that BBC2 programme "Stories of Us" - presented by alumna and Honorary Fellow Reverend Kate Bottley aired recently. The programme investigated inspiring stories of how people across the UK are leading more spiritually and emotionally fulfilling lives.

As part of filming, we welcomed Kate back to campus to train with the University's Women's Rugby Union team in December 2019.Together they discussed teamwork, supporting each other on and off the pitch, and how shared experiences can benefit mental health.
