The Cadbury Experience
Cadbury College isn't just about gaining your A-Level and Level 3 qualifications. We're about making the most of your college experience; developing your knowledge, creating life experiences and memories and enhancing your University and job applications in the future. We are the whole package!
All courses at Cadbury College are complemented by a range of exciting trips and visits dedicated to the respective subjects. Geography and Travel & Tourism students recently visited Bournemouth to support their coursework projects, whilst our Photographers worked with Jocelyn Allen and our Performing Artists enjoyed a Frantic Assembly workshop just before their end of year performance. Maths students visited a Maths Inspiration conference this year, learning how maths can impact public lives and how it plays an important role in a huge variety of jobs. Meanwhile our budding Historians enjoyed a talk at Carrs Lane College about Henry VII to support their coursework module.
Each year, the college also hosts some international trips, both subject-specific and college-wide. In the past, students have jetted off to Iceland, Germany, Morocco and Spain. These usually take place just before the summer holiday.
Cadbury College also invites a selection of external speakers into the college to give talks and presentations to students. These can be subject specific or they can simply be hosted to broaden students' horizons beyond their individual study programmes. Previous speakers have included Suzanne Virdee and Ashram Moseley talking about domestic abuse and violence, Staffordshire University talking about employability, CityYear and STA Travel talking about gap years and travelling and we are currently working with Giles Hammond to talk to students about the topical gravitational waves.
Aside from trips, visits and external speakers, there are plenty of other things you can get stuck into to enhance your time here at Cadbury College.
You could become a Student Representative and promote the college at Open Events and visit local schools to attract new students. If writing is more your style, you could broaden your creativity by writing for our student blog. This is a valuable tool for prospective students, reading about life at college from a current student's point of view. With our help, you could make that difference!
Our Open day will be held on the 3rd July
Students from Cadbury College have earned positive praise from Birmingham’s business leaders in the Community-Apprentice Pitching Challenge this month!
