The Isle of Wight College has a national reputation for providing quality teaching and learning and has many first class facilities.

The Isle of Wight College has a proven track record of excellent success rates, The College provides excellent ‘value added’ for all college learners – this means learners achieved much higher passes than would be expected given the GCSE grades they started with. The College’s standard for ‘Value added’ is amongst the best in Britain.

There are lots of choices you have to make when deciding to come to college and that the list of options available after school can sometimes be confusing. In response to the local authority’s withdrawal of advice and guidance services to young people in full-time education, The College has ensured its students continue to get the best possible support by appointing Catherine Jackson, a highly qualified careers advisor.

Catherine is recognised by the Institute of Careers Guidance as an advanced practitioner and is a member of the Careers Professional Alliance. She will be happy to advise any College student or prospective student and operates an appointment system as well as drop-in sessions.

Is there a car park?

Yes, we have a large free car park and parking permits are NOT required.

What subject areas will be represented?

Do I have to be there for the duration of the event?

Of course not! You can drop in at any time and stay for as long or as little as you wish across the open period.

How do I apply for a course?

You will be able to apply online on the day, and staff will be on hand to help you, or if you prefer, you can pick up an application form.

Can I bring my friend along?

Definitely! Everyone is welcome to come along. Your family and friends are very welcome.
