On Monday 18th June 37 Y10 students took time out from their studies to visit Walsall College. Rebecca Ward from the college gave a brief introduction to what the college can offer. Students then went on a tour of the college looking at mechanics, electrical, carpentry and joinery. Students were surprised to hear that the college does have female students on many of the above courses helping to break the gender stereotypical viewpoint.
We had a look around the art and drama areas. Health and Social was a particular interest as the area was equipped as a consulting room complete with mannequins and skeletons. The Francesco hair salon which offers styling and beauty treatments all carried out by students of the college at a very competitive price. Students also had a tour of the HUB which houses the restaurant, spa and gym.
Our students were really impressed with the facilities and I think that many will seriously consider Walsall College as a destination Post 16.
