In the childcare class they were given realistic experiences, learning how to care for electronic babies, costing around £3,000 each, bathing them and taking part in creative activities.

There were 10 babies, programmed to cry and seek attention, with the young people even sampling baby food themselves.

Elsewhere during an insight into the travel and tourism course, visitors had the chance to be part of the college cabin crew, including the chance to experience a realistic aircraft situation and give a safety demonstration.

One of the rooms has been fitted out as an aircraft cabin, with rows of seats and aircraft-like windows. The cabin gives an insight into cabin crew training.
