Deciding what to do after school can be a difficult decision, which is why we think it’s important at R.E.A.L. for our learners to experience different post education options.

Learners recently visited Nottingham Trent University’s Science and Engineering department and got the chance to use some of the most up-to-date technology and equipment. This included creating 3D models, glass blowing and working with robotics.

Maria Poyser, Site Lead Teacher said: “These out-of-classroom experiences are vitally important for our learners, particularly the University visits, as it raises their aspirations and helps them to see that education is and can be exciting. 

“It’s not just about sitting behind a desk, it’s about creativity, innovation, research, daring to try new things; and most importantly it doesn’t have to be beyond their reach.”
