The Countess of Wessex will be in the region to officially open Hartlepool College today (November 13th).
Just one stop on her tour around the region, the Countess of Wessex will be meeting with students, governors, staff and guests when she officially opens the college in Hartlepool.
The Countess is also expected to take a tour of the college.
Other guests at today's opening include the Mayor of Hartlepool and Hartlepool MP Ian Wright.
The college's aim is for students to be at the very centre of the opening - with admissions on the rise ever since Hartlepool College was founded three years ago.
