VPC Welcome Visitors

Staff and students at VPC welcomed two special visitors this week, Fiona Phelps,  Assistant Director, Education and SEND (LBS) and Head of SEND Team Manager, Amalia Banon.

Student, Lukas and Head of Centre, Linda Rowe gave Fiona and Amalia a guided tour of the college centre. Students were keen to greet the visitors and talk to them about what they were learning in their sessions. Matt, showed them his crafting skills whilst making a valentine themed plaque, whilst other students illustrated how they use Contour (an e-learning portfolio) to track their learning journey.  After the tour  Fiona and Amalia met Kelly Philips, Head of College and Kirsty Cottrell, Assistant Head of College to find out more about student outcomes and the strategic direction of the college.

Outcomes for learners are outstanding, teaching, learning and assessment are excellent and the extremely diverse programmes that meet learners’ individual needs, interests and aspirations, prepare them very well for life after College.
