More than just a student - CAVC learners star in new #morethanjustaclassroom campaign

Cardiff and Vale College students are the stars of new advertising campaign encouraging people to beat the queues and apply now for courses at the College in September.


The #morethanjustaclassroom campaign, coming soon to a noticeboard or location near you, highlights the College’s state-of-the-art facilities and employability-focused approach to learning. The students from across Cardiff and the Vale studying on a wide range of courses featured in the campaign explain how CAVC is far more than a just a classroom where you go to learn and gain qualifications; there are far more opportunities on offer than that.


The campaign can be found across outdoor media sites, online and on social media using stories, images and videos to give prospective learners a real insight into that CAVC has to offer.


Cardiff and Vale College is now accepting applications for new courses that start in September 2016. If you are a school-leaver, would like a change in direction, or want to upskill and progress in your career, visit http://www.cavc.ac.uk/en/courses/how-apply/ to apply.


As A Level student and Rugby Academy player 17-year-old Ben Thomas explains: “For me, CAVC is #morethanjustaclassrom because it provides an opportunity to combine high level rugby with my education. The CAVC Rugby Academy is an environment where we can better ourselves as rugby players and compete with the best colleges around.


“Having the gym on campus makes it very easy and practical for us to physically develop in the way that we need to do. From a young age it’s a dream for all rugby players to play in the Cardiff Arms Park and for us to have this opportunity is amazing.”


Tayla-Jade Gratton is an Aircraft Engineering student at the College’s renowned International Centre for Aerospace Training (ICAT), based at Cardiff Airport. The 17-year-old from Barry said: “CAVC is #morethanjustaclassroom to me because it allows you to actually work outside of the classroom and be more hands-on with what you’re working with.


“It’s not like school where you sit in different rooms for six hours. Here you explore different ways to learn using different facilities and it’s not tedious or boring. I love it!”


Eighteen-year-old Hospitality and Catering student Anastasia Graikowski-Hainsworth learns and works in The Classroom, the College’s landmark fifth-floor restaurant in its City Centre Campus in the heart of Cardiff. She says: “CAVC is much #morethanjustaclassroom to me as we get the chance to gain real work experience whilst studying.


“The facilities we have are really good, especially the kitchen, as we have all the best equipment. I’m also really happy with the restaurant with its fantastic views over Cardiff. Having tablets to take the orders is great, it makes it much faster and easier to work.”
