A Baltic Exchange

02 March 2017

During January, the Centre for Applied Sciences and the Sixth Form College were delighted to welcome a party of 40 visitors from Latvia and Estonia. All educationalists who were mainly school Principals arrived as part of a British Council initiative, keen to find out more about UK post-16 vocational and academic education.

After presentations by Centre Directors David Swinscoe (CAS) and Peter Murray (SFC), the visitors enjoyed escorted tours of the two sites. Central to the success of the tours were three Russian-speaking Sixth Form College students Clarisa, Wiktoria and Mike who happily chatted and translated their way around the buildings, adding an extra dimension to the visitors’ experience.

"we always welcome the opportunity to exchange knowledge and ideas with colleagues,"

Peter Murray said, “Our Latvian and Estonian visitors were very impressed with what they saw and asked me to thank everyone for their hospitality. We always welcome the opportunity to exchange knowledge and ideas with colleagues, and this visit was an enjoyable learning experience for all involved.”
