Broadstairs College hosts stakeholder event

Broadstairs College held an event for local business leaders to learn more about their nearest Further Education College on Wednesday 18 September, with the aim of improving and creating relationships with business.

The day consisted of a brief overview of the EKC Group’s strategic direction and offered an insight to our mission, vision and culture as an organisation.

Broadstairs College Principal, Kurt Salter said: “This event was a wonderful opportunity to show local businesses what we can offer as a College and how further education is preparing the workforce of the future.  Our relationships and partnerships with local employers are so important in developing our curriculum and ensuring our students understand the career paths available to them.”

After a short presentation, there was an extensive tour of Broadstairs College – showing off the high-quality facilities for a wide range of vocational subjects. Guest were invited to try a range of activities including experiencing Virtual Reality in Broadstairs College’s state-of-the-art gaming suite.

The tour was rounded off by a trip to EKC Commercial Services’, The Yarrow hotel to show how the four-star facility is used in order to enrich student experience while remaining fully open to the public. A buffet lunch was prepared and served by the Broadstairs College catering students, assisted by the Yarrow’s catering team.
