Visiting our campus

Campus tours

We offer tailored campus tours to groups of students who would like to see the college in action. These take place during college hours in order for students to have a feel of what it would be like to study here after school. These tours are available at all of our sites, including the Broadway Theatre in Barking.

Taster days

We run regular in-house taster days in a range of subjects designed to give students an enriching experience and a thirst for further study. These one-day tasters happen at Rush Green in subject areas such as STEM, Digital Media, Animation, Photography and Business Careers Skills.

Open Events

Throughout the year, we open our college doors to everyone. This is a chance for potential students and parents/carers to come along and meet with course tutors, tour the different subject areas, gain advice from our Careers Guidance team and can even apply to a course and have an interview/acceptance there and then. See our college calendar for the full list of Open Events.

Careers advice

We have a dedicated Careers Team here at Barking & Dagenham College and this is available for all pre-16 students to engage with. Come along to our drop-in advice sessions, or book a slot to ensure you receive impartial information, advice and guidance for your career and the courses that can get you to where you want to be.

Sports trials

We run several sports trials throughout the year for potential recruits onto our Rugby and Football Academy. Spend a day on campus, meeting the sports tutors and test your ability to become part of our dedicated sports teams.

Special Educational Needs Disability Provision

If your students have a SEN and/or disability with an EHC plan, then they are entitled to a personalised taster session in a subject of their choice. They can be accompanied by a parent/carer or teacher and enjoy a 121 session on our campus where they will be provided with all the information about the college’s extra provision and the courses available to them.
