Students at Oaklands College travelled around Hertfordshire in a special bus to help boost apprenticeships in the county.
The college, which has a base in Welwyn Garden City, took to the roads in the double-decker in aid of National Apprenticeship Week.
Oaklands students visited schools across Hertfordshire, including Welwyn Garden City’s Stanborough and Onslow St Audrey’s in Hatfield, with both bus decks packed with “taster stations” – relating to options available at the college.
Its apprenticeship team was also available throughout to answer questions and give information.
Business development manager Matt Webb said: “The bus has been a great way for us to bring a little of college life right into schools and get students engaged and thinking about their all-important next step.

“To have our own in-house apprentices working on the bus has been great experience for them and great to share their own experiences first-hand.”
