Saturday advice event at college

A Saturday open event is coming to West Nottinghamshire College’s Derby Road campus on Saturday 11 November to give young people and adults alike the chance to find out more about college life and the courses available.

The open event on Saturday 11 November will be at the Derby Road campus

The event, which will run from 10am to 1pm, will enable visitors to speak to teachers from all curriculum areas including sport, health and social care, hairdressing, hospitality, childcare, uniformed protective services, business, construction and more.

There will also be information available for adult learners aged 19 and above who are looking to study either a course in areas such as hairdressing and beauty therapy, construction or childcare, a short course in a hobby-related area such as health and wellbeing, art and crafts or foreign languages, or even an Access to University programme, designed to prepare adults for university-level studies.

Those who are looking to study at the college after school can learn more about life at college, extensive student support and discover the extra-curricular activities open to them once they become a student.

Visitors can find out more about the new T Levels which are designed to be studied after GCSEs. Currently the college is running T Levels in business and administration, construction, digital, engineering and manufacturing, health and science and more. Teachers will be available to discuss more about how the T Level programmes are split between learning in the classroom and on work placement.

Student support teams such as financial support and additional learning support will be available to advise individuals on the help they can offer to students whilst at the college.

Additionally, the careers team and apprenticeship team will be available for potential new students and their parents to speak to, to help them to decide which career path they might wish to choose.

Anyone wishing to pursue a career in the uniformed protective services (UPS) can join the college’s Remembrance Day service, which will be held in the college’s sports hall from 10.30-11.15am.

This will give the chance to observe current UPS students demonstrating precise military drill movements which they’ve studied on their courses.

Following the ceremony individuals will have the chance to speak with teachers and students to get an insight into the UPS courses and the careers that they can lead to.

Those who wish to attend the Remembrance Day ceremony should select tickets for both ‘Remembrance Day Service’ and ‘Session 1 – 10.00-11.30’ when booking on Eventbrite.
