I am Marketing Director at Oaklands College and look after all aspects of marketing from digital to PR, communications, and events. Oaklands have campuses in St Albans, Welwyn Garden City, and Borehamwood. We aim to provide education and opportunities to help our communities reach their full potential. Our main student areas are school leavers, adult learners, apprenticeships and higher education. We are passionate about ensuring our students and staff have the care, support and well being as well as our local communities. Recently the staff and student have made Face Shields on our 3D printers, donated PPE from our hair and beauty salons and made wash bags for nursing uniforms.
Oaklands students work with local businesses for work experience projects and successful industry placements (often resulting in a permanent role at the end of it). We also welcome external speakers to come and share their knowledge and expertise with our students.
Oaklands College has a strong reputation for its Sports academies with students coming from all over the country to study and train. They often go on to compete at a high level from Saracens rugby to Mavericks netball and even Olympians. During the lockdown our sports students have been competing on lots of team fitness challenges to stay on track and keep in touch.
Our venue hire opportunities (post COVID-19) range from large hall space, meeting rooms, land hire, our restaurant and tipi events. We also run very popular animal antics parties in our mini zoo(our lemurs and meerkats are one of the highlights).
Whether you want more information on courses, training, apprenticeships or ways in which Oaklands College can help the community please do get in touch. I am happy to help.
