Join the Carlisle Youth Council to Judge Landscape Project

Carlisle City Council in partnership with the Landscape Institute has launched a two-stage design competition to select an outstanding designer or team of designers to prepare design proposals for a new multi-modal Greenway and Park which will form the centrepiece of some new Garden Village communities to be located to the south of Carlisle.

This is a project rich with opportunity, focused on selecting a design that demonstrates an outstanding and innovative piece of green infrastructure and that delivers a range of themes within an integrated landscape design. https://competitions.landscapeinstitute.org/st-cuthberts/


The competition has two stages – the first stage of judging has taken place and three entries have been shortlisted for Stage 2.

We would like to invite you to join the judging panel for Stage 2 of the Competition to choose a winning design from the three shortlisted.

TryLife

TryLife is as an interactive drama series, designed by some of the best people from the creative, youth, education and health care industries in which the story is moulded and shaped by the user.

At key moments the action is paused and the user decides the outcome.

The user guides the character through various different scenarios which are all filmed. The user is faced with decisions and these decisions will change the course of the story line. The outcomes of their decisions and the plot routes are based on probability using real stats and data.

Give this a go by following this link https://www.trylife.tv/ or visiting our Student Portal and clicking on Resources.

Changes to logging into your college Microsoft 365 account

Multi-factor authorisation  

How to Install the Microsoft Authenticator App on Your Phone

Changes when signing into your college Microsoft accounts 

The way you sign and access your college accounts is changing from Thursday 30 September. This means that when you try to access any of your Microsoft accounts through office.com or any Microsoft Office App (Teams, Word, PowerPoint etc), you will be prompted to authenticate your details.   

This is called Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) and you may be familiar with this when you access your online bank or other online accounts. 

What will change?  

When you access your accounts for the first time from Thursday 30 September you will be asked to set up MFA.   


How do I know what to do?
A guide has been created which explains how to set up MFA from a PC/Laptop and mobile device. This guide can be found here.  

An additional SWAY presentation is also available here which provides a walkthrough of each of the steps.


Why do I have to do this?  

MFA adds a second layer of security to your college accounts. It means that if someone gets hold of your password, your account can’t be accessed.   


Need help?
If you need support in setting up your device please email HelpwithMFA@ncgrp.co.uk 

We can also help you in the Student Zone should you need any assistance or help with understanding this.
