I was at a meeting yesterday at Britain’s newest university, the University of Cumbria. This is what was, St Martins College, The Cumbria Institute of the Arts in Carlisle, and Newton Rigg in Penrith. I was at the campus in Ambleside which was once the Charlotte Mason teacher training college. What a beautiful campus, I could work there! The trees turning bronze, golden and amber were spectacular and it was sad that I didn’t have the time to stop and take more photos. The meeting was also interesting with a presentation from the Cumbria 14-19 partnership about the implementation of the diplomas for this age group and a final talk about the Learning Gateway an innovative new build learning space on the Fusehill Campus in Carlisle.
