Our Community and Schools Liaison Officer is available to attend external career events both in the community and in schools. They can provide impartial information, advice and guidance to students and their parents about courses that the college offers.
We can also arrange the following:
We can organise tours of our Ware and/or Broxbourne campus for your school to give your students the opportunity to see what’s on offer at each campus. They will get the chance to talk to the tutors and students, and see our outstanding industry-standard facilities.
Or, if you are a parent, we can offer bespoke tours for yourself and your child which are perfect for those who have not yet decided on their next step, or are unsure whether college is the right option for them.
