BMet to host Virtual Open Day
Last year it was twelve hours, one college, and lots of tweets. This year, it is twelve hours, three colleges, lots of tweets, Instagram posts and more!
Wednesday 5 June will see BMet open its doors for the second time to give an access all areas peek into what college life is like.
Running from 7am to 7pm, the day will showcase the different courses offered, offer an opportunity to hear from students and give a chance for people to ask any questions about college life!
This year we are taking things up a notch by giving access to all three colleges.
Last year the focus was purely on Matthew Boulton College but this year we have extended the remit by opening the doors to James Watt and Sutton Coldfield Colleges for followers (old and new alike) on social media.
This level of unprecedented access across three campuses is designed to display all BMet has to offer, while showing how college life continues to grow and evolve.
Our trio of reporters will be reporting live from the three Birmingham based colleges to provide a close-up look at the different and exciting courses and activities that are on offer.
A whole lot can happen in 12 hours at a single campus so imagine how much activity takes place across all three?
Each campus is a unique hive of activity so while students at Matthew Boulton College maybe fine-tuning their music production skills, students at James Watt College could be learning new techniques for hair and beauty.
BMet Principal and Chief Executive, Cliff Hall, said: “Everyday thousands of young people walk through the doors at our different campuses. While we play a large role in education in Birmingham, we find that many people have no idea what an average day at a BMet campus is like.
“Doing a virtual open day is a fun and accessible way for people to understand what college life is like in 2019, and will also demonstrate the different ways we help our students achieve their goals and fulfill their potential.
“Whether you’re a potential student looking for the next stop on your journey, or someone that is simply curious about how college life has changed over the years, I would encourage you to tune in – you might be surprised by what you discover!”
The virtual open day is coming just ten days before a physical open day on Saturday 15 June where people can come in and see the colleges for themselves between 10am-1pm. Click here to find out more about for 15 June.
We hope that the virtual open day will spur people to come in, have a look around, and become members of the BMet college community!
