Celebrating a full and rich year of face-to-face shows, events and graduations

22 Jul 2022 | College

After the isolation of lockdown and social distancing, the 2021 / 2022 academic year saw the return of face-to-face shows, events, exhibitions and award ceremonies, and what a year it's been!

The shows and events that we put on internally and those that we attend externally involve a huge amount of planning, hard work, energy and most importantly, teamwork. The commendable efforts of Tracey Bourne are key to this delivery and her tireless work in coordinating our full events calendar for Bishop Burton, Riseholme and University centre Bishop Burton. However, the teamwork of those who work behind the scenes, on the stands and stages, in the schools, exhibition halls, marquees and sometimes, muddy fields, is what makes the collective effort work. Well done and thank you to everyone who has supported this year in positioning our college as a strong, successful and inspirational organisation.

Here's a few numbers to show how far and wide we reach:

  • 16 Open Events across both campuses - 1941 prospective students (plus parents / carers)
  • 88 School visits - assemblies / career advice sessions
  • 3 Regional Schools' Skills events - Skills Grimsby / Lincolnshire Schools Days (3) / Future First Expo
