Yeovil College invites visitors to first information evening of the year

Yeovil College will be holding its first Information Evening of the academic year, which will take place on the Mudford Road campus on Tuesday, 8 October, between 5pm and 7:30pm.

The evening will give visitors a wide range of information about the college, including what courses are available – ranging from full-time and part-time courses, degree Level qualifications, apprenticeships and night school. The event will be an opportunity to discover the great things the college has achieved last year and their determination to build on these achievements this year.

Yeovil College has been ranked the best performing college in Somerset for overall achievement rates. Full-time programmes such as the A Level courses have exceeded expectations, achieving 100% pass rate for the fourth year running. The Education Skills Funding Agency (ESFA) places the college within the top 10% of the best performing colleges in the country.

Anyone that is interested in going will need to secure their place very soon because the information evenings have been growing in popularity over the past couple of academic years.

Visitors will also be able to explore the Kingston Sixth Form Centre, Nexus Beauty Salon, Da Vinci Restaurant, the Leonardo Creative Industries Centre, Bradford’s Construction Centre, Screwfix Trades Skills Centre and the full-size Lynx helicopter which has been kindly donated to the college back in 2017.

Mark Bolton, CEO & Principal of Yeovil College, said: “Our Information Evening provides our potential students with the perfect opportunity to learn about and understand the options available to them, post year 11. We are focused on each person as an individual, driving and supporting everyone to achieve their maximum potential.

“Not only have we achieved impressive results, which places us firmly within the top 10% of Further Education college in the country, we have recently obtained a game-changing amount of money to invest within our campus and IT structure. I urge anyone who is in year 11 to visit us, meet the staff, take a look around and ask us challenging questions – we look forward to inviting you to become part of our future success story.”
