Realisation – Live Technology!

Our mission is to develop you as students to realise your full potential, academically, socially and creatively using 21st century solutions. Enabling you to go out into the world of work to create things that people need and that work well having accessed the very latest in equipment and technologies here at College. Working towards a better, sustainable global community.

By recognising and planning learning around different contexts and experiences, the Realisation faculty curriculum aims to make better connections across your learning. Important themes emerge, such as enterprise and sustainable development, and your learning relates to these themes and is built in to the experiences to support the development of skills and attributes and therefore positive outcomes. We’ll help you prepare for life in the real world!
