Local businesses show their support for BCoT after signing up as college ambassadors.


A number of local businesses and organisations have shown their support for Basingstoke College of Technology (BCoT) after signing up as college ambassadors at a special event hosted on Wednesday 6 November.

Representatives from a wide range of local businesses attended BCoT’s onsite restaurant, The Restaurant at BCoT, to hear all about the role the college is playing in helping to boost the local economy, and how they can play their part as ambassadors for the college.

The ambassadors were given a tour of the college’s state-of-the-art facilities, before Anthony Bravo, Principal of BCoT, gave a detailed insight into how the college is continuing to develop its offering to match the needs of local employers.

Anthony Bravo, Principal of BCoT, said: “I would like to thank all of the individuals who have offered to become an ambassador for the college. Our purpose is to drive economic growth in the local area and our close relationships with employers ensures our learners progress with the skills and experience they need for their future career.”

“97.2% of our students progress to university, employment or an apprenticeship and our ambassadors will play a significant part in promoting the idea of studying a technical qualification at BCoT.”

Paul Leahy, Further Education Partnership Manager at CENTURY, an award-winning AI education technology company, said: “Being asked to be an ambassador of BCoT is a real privilege. I’ve been so impressed with the leadership of the college, the feedback from the staff and the students. They are at the cutting edge of what’s happening and what is needed for jobs across this region. A very innovative college, BCoT are leading with many aspects of what young people will need for their future careers.”
