Campus life


Getting involved in the college’s cultural and sporting activities gives you the opportunity to visit new places, experience something new, and relax in a more informal environment with other students studying at the college.


The Level 5 Diploma in Education & Training is extremely current and progressive and is very relevant to the curriculum. It allows student teachers great opportunities to incorporate IT into the classroom, and integrate curricular areas with new media.
