On Friday, the Right Honourable Amber Rudd MP visited college to debate a variety of political issues with our students.
Ewan Robertson and Elizabeth Rand, two of our first year Politics students, gave a thorough and informative presentation, focusing on issues such as housing, national security and the UK’s relationship with the USA.
Elizabeth and Ewan then posed a series of challenging questions to the Home Secretary, which she answered in front of a packed audience, consisting of students from a wide-range of subjects. The RT Hon Ms Rudd was so impressed with Ewan and Elizabeth that she offered them both the prestigious opportunity of gaining a week’s work experience at her London office.
“Having Amber Rudd visit the college was a great opportunity and I really enjoyed presenting to her. It is fantastic that she has offered me the opportunity of work experience.”
This event was the latest in the wide-ranging enrichment programme offered to the students at Bexhill 6th Form College. Last week, ninety Business and Economics students took part in the first round of the ICAEW’s national Business, Accounting & Skills Education competition. More on this story will be on the College's website and social media soon.
