Dudley College has been pleased to host 28 staff and students from El Jadida, Morocco on a summer study tour (24 July – 4 Aug). Aged from 14 to 18, the students came to Dudley to undertake a two-week programme, incorporating English language, university visits and cultural trips to Stratford-upon-Avon and Manchester. The students also enjoyed shopping in Birmingham and dabbing in London!

The visit, facilitated by Marque Associates in Birmingham, is the second time young people from L’Ange Bleu High School have come to Dudley College on this programme. To make the trip a success, the college provided intensive pastoral support alongside the excellent teaching provided by our academic staff. We were also warmly welcomed by the University of Wolverhampton and Birmingham City University. At the end of the programme, students attended a graduation ceremony which marked the end of a hugely successful and enjoyable week. We now look forward to welcoming students from Les Ecoles Ihsane in El Jadida next fortnight, and even more students from Morocco in 2018!
