As the academic year came to a close, we’ve been busy saying goodbye to our students leaving the College. With five awards ceremonies, including our first Graduation Ceremony held at the York Barbican yesterday, we celebrated our student’s outstanding achievements and contributions to College life in style. Welcoming two outstanding guest speakers, Amanda Owen and TV Zoo Vet Matt Brash, the ceremonies were hugely inspirational to staff, students and guests alike. We’d like to say a huge thank you to all of our staff, sponsors and award providers who made the celebrations of the student’s successes so special - and to our graduating students, best of luck for the future!

Have you spotted the newest Askham Bryan Wildlife & Conservation Park attraction yet? The amazing new feature can be found on the way to the park’s falconry and was created by North Yorkshire-based Karl barker chainsaw carving, who has previously worked on wooden sculptures from two foot owls to seven foot lions. The collaborative project combined staff and student effort, including our Grounds Manager Kevin Shepard, the Arboriculture apprenticeship team and Sarah Wickham, Commercial Business Manager. The teams involved came together to work with the talented sculptor, who is now benefiting from some of our excellent commercial courses. The sculpture is even more impressive in person – make sure you give it a visit!
