The College Years 1948-78 65th Anniversary

We are delighted to invite you to join us for the 65th Anniversary Celebration of the establishment of the City of Coventry Training College, subsequently the Coventry College of Education. To mark the occasion we are holding a reunion event on Saturday 19th October 2013 at Arden House, Westwood Campus (the former College site). The event will give guests the opportunity to renew acquaintances, catch up with old friends and ‘take a walk down memory lane’.

Our reunion will run from 10.30am – 4.30pm and the programme will include tours of the ‘College’ site, a memorabilia exhibition, viewings of the original college videos and an opportunity to view the newly refurbished Arden accommodation. A copy of our special edition Mosaic magazine will be available for all. Refreshments will be available throughout the day and will include morning coffee, a delicious lunch and afternoon tea.
We are also pleased to welcome Dr Adam Boddison, Academic Principal: International Gateway for Gifted Youth (IGGY) at the University of Warwick, as guest speaker who will talk about ‘Connecting and Challenging the World’s Brightest Minds’. Adam is an alumnus of Warwick four times over. He started at the University in 2000 as an undergraduate studying for his BSc in Mathematics. He also completed his PGCE and MA at Warwick, graduating from his PhD in Mathematics Education in 2010.
The discounted rate for the day is £30. We expect this be a popular event and spaces are limited so please book your place as soon as possible. Book online at:
