Visiting Speakers

The College is always welcoming new people and organisations to come along and speak to or present to our students to enrich their programme of study.  This could be anything from a service that you want to promote to our young people, talks regarding the sector that you work within or to obtain work experience or placements.

If you or your organisation think that you would be of use to our students, whether that be a specific cohort of students or a generic visit, we would love to hear from you.

If you are based within our Northamptonshire sites, please email or for Bedfordshire, please email with your name, organisation details and what you would like to offer for our students and a member of the team will be in touch.

Work Experience/ Placement
