Virtual Events

Welcome to the home of Warrington & Vale Royal College’s virtual events!

In recent times we have all to change the way we do things, and whilst we would love to invite you into college to meet our expert tutors, see our industry standard facilities and even talk to some of our existing students, unfortunately that is just not possible right now.

So, for now you can talk to us from the comfort of your own home or office by joining one of our virtual events. Be sure to check back regularly as we are constantly updating the sessions list below.

Here you will be able to find a list of any upcoming events that you may be interested in attending. If you don’t see what you are looking for, please do not hesitate to contact us on: 01925 494400 or by email to: learner.services@wvr.ac.uk.
