Working with local providers, Exeter College is launching two new apprenticeships in IT and Software Development; a Software and Development Technician at Level 3 and a Software Developer at Level 4. It has been highlighted in the local economy that there is a growing need for digital skills, and it is hoped that these new apprenticeship programmes will help fill the skills gap.

This year's final performance for our UAL Level 3 Extended Diploma Performing Arts’ students is A Midsummer Night's Dream. We invite you to join us at one of the performance - tickets are available through the Barnfield Theatre. A Midsummer Night’s Dream is a comedy written by William Shakespeare in 1595/96. It portrays the events surrounding the marriage of Theseus, the Duke of Athens, to Hippolyta (the former queen of the Amazons). These include the adventures of four young Athenian lovers and a group of six amateur actors (the mechanicals) who are controlled and manipulated by the fairies who inhabit the forest in which most of the play is set.
Exam time is well and truly upon us. And along with it comes the inevitable nail biting, stress and worry. Feeling anxious about your exams is completely normal, but rest assured there are some simple things you can do to make sure you perform to your best on the day. 1. Eat well Everyone knows the benefits of eating a healthy diet, but during your exam period it is more crucial than ever. A diet packed with plenty of fresh fruit and veg will make you feel physically equipped to take on even the toughest of mental challenges! Sip water instead of caffeine or sugary drinks which, as tempting as they are, will do more harm than good. And most importantly, on the day of your exams eat a good breakfast - something like porridge is ideal so you have the energy you need to keep going.
