We understand that it is currently difficult for young people to visit colleges and sixth forms to explore their options, so we have created a special virtual tour of our fantastic facilities. The virtual tour uses 360° photos with audio narration and sound effects to give visitors as realistic experience as possible while remaining safely in their own homes.

Featuring highlights from across the College’s vocational curriculum areas, including workshops, salons, kitchens and IT suites, the team here hope that the tour will allow prospective students to familiarise themselves with the campus and learn more about the career pathways that are available to them.

The tour forms part of the College’s upcoming Virtual Open Event, in which prospective students will be able to book individual, one-to-one discussions with tutors and careers advisers via an online booking system.

Marketing Manager, Naomi Cripps, said: “We are constantly looking for new ways to engage with prospective students and provide them with the information they need to make important decisions about their futures. When people visit Newbury College they are always amazed by our incredible facilities and the wealth of knowledge that our tutors have. We hope by providing both the virtual tour and the opportunity for one-on-one discussions with curriculum staff, potential students and parents will be able to enjoy the experience of an Open Event from the comfort of their own home.”

Adults looking to upskill and enhance their career prospects are also being welcomed to speak to tutors at University Centre Newbury (UCN). The UCN recently opened within a specially refurbished wing of the Newbury College campus, expanding the career-focused education range of professional and higher education programmes for the region.

University Centre Newbury (UCN) offers degrees and other higher-level qualifications in the key sectors of Business & Finance, Leadership & Management, Digital Technologies, Engineering, Graphic Design, Health & Social Care, and Children’s Development & Learning.
