Specialist pathways are focussed on future careers or higher education opportunities. A pathway is made up of courses that allow any student the opportunity to achieve their goals and ambitions.
College has helped me prepare for my future by building my confidence and has inspired me. In 5 years I hope to have graduated from university and be working in management in the travel industry.
Sarah Moyse visited the college to give a career talk to our level 2 and 3 Travel and Tourism students about working as cabin crew for Virgin Atlantic, one of the UK's leading scheduled airlines.
Sarah had fascinating stories to tell the students about working on-board as cabin crew and gave an overview of the great benefits of working for Virgin Atlantic. A very engaging talk.
Travel and Tourism is a pathway full of opportunity and diversity. Study with us and you could find yourself planning and organising events, learning sea survival skills or even completing work experience with local tourism companies.

The Royal Marine Commandos popped in last week to show our Level 2 Motor Vehicle students what being a Marine really means, putting them through their paces with some personal training exercises.
Hairdressing students attended Salon International at the EXCEL in London. Our students learnt some great techniques, and after seeing so much inspiration and talent under one roof, they are raring to get back into the salon!
It’s colour time! The full time level 2's have done so well they are already practicing their colourIng techniques.
The students now offer a salon session every Monday afternoon which is great experience for them, getting them work ready for the future.
During Community Week the Early Years Level 2 students organised and held children's book sales in the community in aid of Home-Start Dover and Deal Branch.

My time at college has been really enjoyable and the campus has a lot to offer. College really opened my eyes to the job I want to do. In the future I hope to become the manager of the nursery they are building at the college! If you believe in yourself you can achieve what you want.
Our annual Christmas Bazaar was a huge success. All of our hairdressing students competed and showed off their fantastic creations. Friends and family enjoyed great stalls and mulled wine, and for the children we had face painting, a bookstall and a special visit from Santa. Thank you to our lovely judges and fabulous compare Rio from Revlon Professional.
My name is Daniel, I am now engineering student at Kingston University. I completed 3 Motor Sport last year. When I first started I couldn’t speak English very well but the staff supported and encouraged me. I completed L2 Motor Vehicle before doing my L3. Getting to university was a challenging achievement but very rewarding. I recommend studying at the College because they help you to achieve your goals.
