I have been in post for almost three months now, and what a hectic three months it has been. The title ‘General Manager’ was well chosen. I have been making decisions upon courses, marketing, paint colours, furniture, apprenticeships, bids, funding….the list goes on.
University Campus Aylesbury Vale has shot up since the summer, and it is now possible to walk around the site and get an appreciation of the scale and layout of the building. It is a spectacular addition to Aylesbury already and looks particularly imposing from Walton Street at ground level. From the canal basin it is easy to see why the setting of Waterside South is so right for the campus. Students at UCAV will enjoy a picturesque environment only a short walk from Aylesbury’s town centre and local amenities. Aylesbury College and Bucks New University created the vision a few years ago and it is thrilling to see it take shape.
