College moves to environmentally friendly digital prospectuses


Previously Activate Learning has printed over 25,000 copies of their prospectus

The group behind Banbury and Bicester College has become one of the first in the further education sector to use personalised digital prospectuses.   Activate Learning will issue the e-document to prospective students in a pioneering move to make the way they recruit new learners more environmentally sustainable. 

Those thinking of heading to the college can personalise the content of their digital prospectus based on their study preferences with a customised e-document made available at the end. 

Students will be able to access their digital prospectus through QR codes at events or via Activate Learning’s websites. 

Peter Reynolds, Director of Communications and Marketing at Activate Learning, said: “Historically we have printed 25,000 plus hard copy prospectuses a year that we give out to schools and as part of our Open Events. 

“This year we were determined to do things differently and create something that is different to what others in the sector are doing and which has real-world benefits for our environment. 

“We will still have small numbers of physical copies due to accessibility needs, available via our college campuses, but for the majority of learners I believe they will find the customisable option of the digital prospectus a much better user experience.”

For every five prospectuses downloaded, Activate Learning will plant a sapling via their partner more:trees and its sustainability scheme.
