Peterborough’s digital creative agency – Free Thinking Design – grows its education portfolio and helps long-established college pave way to the future

City College Peterborough (CCP) is looking forward to attracting even more students for decades to come thanks to its new website, designed and developed by the digital agency Free Thinking Design. The new site is fully-responsive across all devices from computers and laptops to tablets and mobile phones, meaning people can research their learning options on the move or at home.

Jackie Hall, Market Development Manager at City College Peterborough said:

“The launch of this new website gives us another big reason to celebrate during our milestone year. The website has already received praise from the college community and is set to be a fantastic tool for communicating our expertise and attracting new students.

“Responsive design was an important requirement for us and makes us accessible to all students, regardless of age, lifestyle or the device they are using. Work done to improve the visibility of courses and the online enrolment facility should also mean we can attract even more students to enrol at the college and learn with us in the future.”

Training courses listed on www.citycollegepeterborough.ac.uk are now also more visible in search engine results, thanks to work done by Free Thinking and PR and marketing agency Media Matters. This makes CCP courses easier to find online and automatically raises the online profile of the city centre college with would-be learners. Students can also stay on top of news, events and discussions at the college thanks to fully integrated Facebook, Twitter and Google+ profiles.

Matt Free, Managing Director, at Free Thinking, said:

“It was a pleasure to work with the team at City College Peterborough on this build especially at this stage in their history. Developing the new site with the aim of helping the college grow the reach of their courses and provide a platform where the college community could feel connected, through blogs and social media, underpinned our work throughout this collaborative process.”

Additional new features of the site include student and staff blogs where individuals can share insights from college life with the public. Click www.citycollegepeterborough.ac.uk to visit the site which is now live.
