Julian celebrates Colleges Week

October 18, 2022

This week, Julian attended a drop-in session in Parliament to show his support for National College Week.

In York we are incredibly lucky to have York College, one of the first ten accredited Institutes of Technology in the UK.

IoTs are a new concept which see local colleges, universities and businesses work together to offer high-quality technical education and provide the skills required in the regional economy.

The courses based at York College will focus on engineering and digital technologies, with the new facilities including a state-of-the-art cyber security lab.

Julian is also proud to support Askham Bryan College, it is one of the most highly reputable farming colleges in Britain, it has long championed agricultural journeys for children who leave school at 16.

Julian said: “It’s a great pleasure to represent the area where the country’s first IoT was chosen. As someone from an agricultural background, I believe passionately in the making advancement for children easier across a range of areas, and College Week gives an opportunity to champion that”
