YEOVIL COLLEGE ANNOUNCES FIRST INFORMATION EVENING OF THE YEAR
Released On 1st Oct 2018
Yeovil College has announced its first Information Evening of the academic year, which will take place on campus on Tuesday 9 October between 5pm and 7:30pm. The event will give everyone the opportunity to discover all the exciting things that have been happening across the College this year, including their 100% A Level pass rate for the third year running.
Visitors will have the opportunity to learn more about the qualifications available, ranging from part-time courses, full-time course, night school courses, Degree Level qualifications and Apprenticeship opportunities. With one of the most successful years on record, Yeovil College will be showing the public why and how they have achieved academic and vocational excellence throughout the year and how they look to further develop this achievement into next year. Yeovil College Principal, John Evans, and Vice Principal, Mark Bolton will both host talks about achieving outstand results, Yeovil College’s commitment to the future and their determination to build on their most successful year in history.
During this event, Yeovil College are offering on 45 minute ‘Pleased to Meet You’ taster sessions to inspire people to take a first step into their dream careers. The taster sessions are a great ‘try before you buy’ opportunity enabling visitors to get involved in the programme, try something they maybe haven’t experienced at school, meet peers with similar interests and in short, to simply have a go. The College will run ‘Pleased to Meet You’ taster sessions in: Engineering, Hospitality and Catering, Beauty Therapy, Sport, Construction, and Hairdressing. Within the Sport session you will have the chance to engage in a strength test and also have a go at the Watt bike challenge. In the Beauty Therapy session you will have the opportunity to create some media makeup. In Hairdressing you will have the chance to experiment with new and different hair styles. In Construction you will make yourself your very own wooden toolbox. In Hospitality you will be getting involved with an omelette making challenge.
The Information Evening will be hosted at Yeovil College’s Mudford Road campus which gives you the ideal chance to explore the incredible on-site facilities, including the helicopter, the beauty salon (Nexus), Kingston Sixth Form Centre, the on campus Da Vinci restaurant, who are offering free teas and coffees, the brand new Screwfix Trades Skills Centre, Leonardo’s Creative and Engineering Centre and the Bradford’s Construction Centre. John Evans, Principal of Yeovil College, said “The Information Evening is a delight to host. It gives all that attend the opportunity to find out what Yeovil College is all about and how it can support them. This year we have further progressed our incredible success story gaining a 100% pass rate in A Levels for the third year running, GCSE results that place us in the top 10% of the country and 100% success rates across the majority of our vocational programmes. If you are in year 11, I would encourage you to visit us on the ninth to take a look at how Yeovil College can boost your career.” Katherine Bolton, Head of Communications and Marketing, said: “We have just had our most successful year at Yeovil College so we are expecting a large number of visitors to the College, all hoping to secure their space. Last year we saw around 2,000 visitors attend this event. I urge you to get in early, talk to the staff, meet the team and ask as many questions as you can. And if you get the opportunity, join in with the taster sessions – we’ve added three new sessions in Hairdressing, Beauty Therapy and Hospitality and Catering.”
