Updated 3:28pm Monday 14th April 2014 in News
Bromley College is inviting applications to its new campuses set to launch later this year.
Prospective students can visit the main campus on Monday April 28 to explore the opportunities on offer, as the college looks to bring "innovative education" to London.
Based in Orpington, the Hospitality, Food and Enterprise Career College, one of the UK’s first following a government initiative, opens its doors in September.
It will offer 14-19 year-olds the chance to study and train towards attaining specialist catering qualifications alongside GCSEs and is supported by hotel companies such as the Dorchester Group, and Hilton.
The Mayor of London, Boris Johnson, said: "Giving young Londoners the chance to get the skills they need to thrive is at the very top of my agenda, so it’s great that Bromley College are opening this innovative ‘career college’ in the capital giving young people the opportunity to learn a trade.
"It is superb to have a college helping more young Londoners into a great career and helping to meet the demand for a skilled and dedicated workforce in this field."
The main site in Bromley meanwhile is set to host the 14-16 College, where pupils will be able to study for GCSEs in key subjects including English, maths and science alongside vocational qualifications in areas such as construction, and hair and beauty.
Principal Sam Parrett said: "The College’s mission to provide real skills and knowledge for the real world can be fully realised with this exciting new development, in which we will train and develop a new generation of rising stars."
The open day will take place between 4.30-7pm. Visit bromley.ac.uk
