Julian Meets With Chief Executive at Askham Bryan College

October 26, 2017

Earlier this month Julian visited Askham Bryan College to meet with the Chief Executive, Catherine Dixon. After an informative tour of the college, Julian was able to discuss a number of matters regarding apprenticeships and technical qualifications, and was pleased to hear about the college’s plans for expansion.    

Over 2,000 employers are currently involved in curriculum development at the college, offering work experience placements and apprenticeship opportunities that address employment priorities and meet the needs of employers in the land-based sector; including agriculture, food manufacturing, agri-foods, agri-technology, bio-science and bio-economy.

The Chief Executive raised a number of concerns in relation to the introduction of new apprenticeship standards and support for travel and residential accommodation for students on block placements. Julian has recently been in correspondence with the Minister for Apprenticeships and Skills regarding post-16 funding and will be writing again following his visit.

Speaking afterwards, Julian said: “Askham Bryan continues to offer quality provision to its students and is serving the needs of local employers. I am encouraged to hear about the college’s plans moving forward and I shall be giving them my full support.”
