To mark the start of our Centenary celebrations we've proudly raised the Internationally recognised co-op logo outside Rochdale Town Hall.

Raising the flag

Part of a global movement

Adopted by the International Co-operative Alliance (ICA) as the global logo for co-ops in 2013, co-operatives in 105 countries now use the Marque to show that they are part of the global co-operative movement.

The ceremony to raise the flag saw both the Mayor of Rochdale Councillor Billy Sheerin in attendance, as well as our very own Cilla Ross, Vice Principal here at the College.
