BURUNDIAN VISIT TO ANDOVER COLLEGE
On Thursday 18th January Andover College was very excited to show some international visitors around our campus.
Rev Chris Bradish from St Mary’s Church, Andover Parish was hosting a delegation from the Anglican Diocese of Burundi, Africa. As part of their visit, Bishop Pedaculi and Reverent Fabian, along with members of St Marys Church came to see the college facilities and learn about the further education provision on offer.
The delegation saw the college’s new digital and nursing teaching areas, and heard about the up coming investment in the planned business hub and the extension of the skills building, increasing the provision for motor vehicle and construction students. They were able to visit some of the support teams at the college, including the wellbeing hub, and they heard about the work the college does to support students to succeed.
Veronica Brewer, Youth & Further Education Lead | Lighthouse Team said
“Our international visitors and us were amazed and inspired by the incredible range of skills, courses, and holistic care that Andover College offer to students. It equips and empowers them so that they can aspire to greater things when they move on to their next stage of their lives. It is an honour to partner with the college and we are very grateful to have such a wonderful, high-tech facility with amazing staff here in Andover”
Helen Perry Assistant Principal said “It is always exciting to hear about the education system in other countries and to share good practice”
Andover College continues to work closely with our partners in the local community, St Mary’s Life Bus has been a regular visitor to the campus and they have also run classes for students on Kintsugi Hope
