Over 600 prospective students and their families visited East Berkshire College's new look Langley College on Tuesday (26 November) to check out its new state-of-the-art learning facilities and find out about over 800 courses at an Autumn Open Day.

From bricklaying to catering, there was an array of demonstrations running throughout the event to entertain and inform visitors. Highlights of the evening included a football skills competition in the College's new Sports Centre and hairdressing students demonstrating some of the latest hairstyling techniques. Meanwhile, beauty therapy students showcased their skills by providing free Indian head massages and manicures.

In the College's impressive Motor Vehicle & Engineering Department, visitors were able to tour the workshops and observe engineering students at work on the College's new £70,000 CNC milling machine. Plus, current students and staff were on hand to answer questions.

Prospective student Lucy Woods (15, from Windsor) attended the event to find out about courses in health and social care in order to pursue a career as a social worker.

"I heard about the Open Day at school, so I thought I'd come along and check out the College for myself. I was really impressed by the building as soon as I walked in. The College was more modern than I expected and everyone was really friendly. It was useful to be able to speak to current students as well as teachers about the courses too."

East Berkshire College continues to go from strength to strength in terms of raising standards and is currently undertaking a £30m refurbishment of its Langley College to provide state-of-the-art learning facilities for current and future students. These improvements include a new Hospitality & Catering Academy, which opened in October 2013, and new commercial hair and beauty salons which are due to be completed in early 2014.

Each year, the College helps thousands of individuals aged 14-90 to fulfil their ambitions through education and training. The College offers an extensive range of part-time, full-time and workplace training courses, from introductory right through to degree level.
