Given the specialist and highly vocational nature of the subjects we offer, we have scheduled 3 weeks throughout the academic year which have been designed to enhance employability and prepare our students for the world of work. Activities will include; expert speaker from industry who will demonstrate current techniques and showcase some new technology within the industries related to the courses we offer.
