About this open day
Welcome to Vision West Nottinghamshire College
Creating futures through education & training across Mansfield, Ashfield & the UK.
There’s never been a more exciting time to join West Notts. The college is widely-regarded as one of the most successful colleges in the country, based on students’ results, Ofsted inspection and reputation.
Each year the college provides education and training to some 14,000 full and part-time students (including 4,000 apprentices) across all major industry sectors from entry level to level 5.
The college’s £50 million redevelopment has now reached completion, which means new buildings, new facilities and new opportunities. Students learn in state-of-the-art facilities, with industry-standard equipment, allowing them to hone their skills for employment.
At college, we embrace and encourage all those who are driven to better themselves, achieve their goals and reach new heights. Outstanding resources combined with exceptional teachers and student support means that whatever your ambition, we can help you to achieve it.

To enhance your experience and minimise queues, we have divided the event into two time slots. Please select the time slot that best suits you when booking, ensuring a more seamless and enjoyable experience.
At West Notts College, we believe in creating an inclusive and welcoming environment for all. We understand that large events with noise and crowds can sometimes be overwhelming for certain individuals. That’s why, from 9am-10am, we are pleased to offer a special ‘Quiet Hour’ designed to ensure a more enjoyable experience for young people and their families who prefer a calmer environment.
Attend our Remembrance Day Service
For any young individuals aspiring to pursue careers in the Army, Royal Air Force, Royal Navy, police force, or fire service, we warmly invite you to join us at our annual Remembrance Day service, scheduled to take place in the college’s sports hall at 10:30-11.15am.
This is an opportunity to observe nearly 90 current students in our Uniformed Protective Service courses as they demonstrate precise drill movements they’ve diligently studied since their arrival at the college in September 2023. Following the service, you’ll have the chance to engage in conversations with students, teachers, and other staff members who are military veterans, gaining valuable insights into our UPS courses and the promising career paths they can lead to.
Booking is essential since we have limited availability. If you wish to attend, please be sure to select tickets for both the ‘Remembrance Day Service’ and ‘Session 1 – 10.00-11.30’.
