We were very excited to welcome ITN Productions on campus on Thursday. The Association of Colleges, in partnership with ITN, is producing a documentary that will show that learning is not restricted to a classroom environment.
ITN visited our farm, campus and Askham Bryan Wildlife & Conservation Park to interview our staff and students, finding out more about the College’s mission to work with industry and provide excellence in land-based education.
We can’t wait to see the finished documentary!
A huge to congratulations to our hardworking and dedicated team at Askham Bryan Wildlife & Conservation Park, who tonight won at the Visit York Tourism Awards 2018.
The Wildlife Park, which was officially opened to the public just over a year ago, was nominated under the Newcomer of the Year category.
An incredible achievement, well done!
Congratulations to our second year Level 3 Equine students, who enjoyed Cross Country Schooling around the course at Rose Thorpe Park Equestrian Centre, to celebrate achieving their Riding over Fences Cross Country Module.
Our Animal Management students enjoyed a five day tour of Czech Republic and Germany earlier this month.
The group visited various Zoos’, such as Prague Zoo, Pilsner Zoo and Leipzig Zoo and benefited from guest lectures and behind the scene tours of the collections. Students also enjoyed cultural experiences, such as a visit to Czech Republic’s famous Pilsner Brewery.
The trip was a great opportunity for the students to see different types of collection and management systems within the zoological society. It also helped the students understand how the UK position fits in with European systems and the wider picture.
