Did you know over 80% of businesses require digital skills?

Get Connected at the Isle of Wight College Open Evening for ALL courses, on Tuesday 3rd March, between 4pm – 6:30pm.

The Isle of Wight College has a national reputation for providing quality teaching and learning and has many first class facilities.

Results speak for themselves
The College provides excellent ‘value added’ for all college learners – this means learners achieved much higher passes than would be expected given the GCSE grades they started with.

The College’s standard for ‘Value added’ is amongst the best in Britain.

What to expect
There is always plenty to see and do at the open events. Here are a few suggestions for you at the Newport Campus:

  • Experience being Spiderman in VR

The Whippingham CECAMM Campus offers:

  • Discuss the apprenticeship route with the Work Based Learning team.

Where your great career begins
There are lots of choices you have to make when deciding to come to college and that the list of options available after school can sometimes be confusing. 

In response to the Isle of Wight council’s withdrawal of advice and guidance services to young people in full-time education, The College has ensured its students continue to get the best possible support by appointing Catherine Jackson, a highly qualified careers advisor.

Catherine is recognised by the Institute of Careers Guidance as an advanced practitioner and is a member of the Careers Professional Alliance. She will be happy to advise any College student or prospective student and operates an appointment system as well as drop-in sessions.

So what are you waiting for?
Visit The College to discuss the opportunities open to you and find out what college life is really like on Tuesday 3rd March 2020 (4pm to 6.30pm). 

We recommend you have a look at the range of courses on offer via The College Website prior to coming along to Open Events.

The College offers ample free parking on campus and good local transport connections are available.

Family and friends welcome.
