November Open Event

Bracknell & Wokingham College gave a warm welcome to over 1000 visitors on Saturday 15 November to their Open Event, the largest event since 2011.

Guests were able to meet with tutors to discuss courses, routes to employment or higher education, and with current students to find out what college life is all about.

Principal Campbell Christie CBE welcomed visitors to the Principal’s Breakfast and Lunch where they could enjoy snacks while listening to his presentation about the college and how it could help them to achieve their goals. The audience also had the opportunity to pose any questions to a panel of college representatives, including some of our current students.

The Open Event saw prospective students keen to claim their places on our courses starting next September with many applying on the day to secure their entry.

James Taylor, Vice Principal of Curriculum & Quality expressed the importance of events like these for prospective students and their parents, to enable them to make a more informed decision together. He said:

“There was a real buzz walking around the college and prospective learners and parents seemed to be captivated by what they saw. 

“These events are so important to help both students and parents understand how college can help them during their course and when it comes to finding a job when they finish college.

“Once again our own students excelled themselves in the support they provided, either through helping in the classrooms giving accounts of their own experiences or taking prospective learners around the building. 

“I would like to thank everyone involved in the smooth running of the Open Event and for all the hard work put in.”
