Birmingham 2022 Cultural Festival project


Creative Black Country is working with partners to request funding to create a project that gives local people an opportunity to tell their story and be part of the Birmingham 2022 Cultural Festival linked to the Commonwealth Games. Participants will have the opportunity to work with professional artists and be part of a very special and memorable event being hosted in our region. The funders have asked us to consult with local people to see if they would like to be involved should we get the funding. We would love to hear your views.

Please complete this form and we will keep you updated:

Mimecast Personal Portal now available

Dear Colleague

We have made available the Mimecast Personal Portal for your convenience.

You can now release held messages and review them quickly without needing to contact IT Services. Messages blocked for serious security violations would still need to be authorised for delivery by the Network Services Team.

Access is available HERE

Simply use your college email address and college network password to login.

Service has also been made available as an application and can be found in the usual website and portal locations.

RATS now accessible from everywhere!

Dear Colleague

We have adjusted RATS system access so it can now be accessed from any device without needing to be on the college network, VPN or Virtual Desktop.

You will now be asked for your username and network password as usual when accessing.

Thank You
