The first open event of 2022 is coming to West Nottinghamshire College to give both adults and school-leavers a chance to find out more about life and studies at the college.

On Saturday 5 February, the open event, which runs from 10am to 1pm at the Derby Road campus in Mansfield, will enable visitors to speak to tutors from all curriculum areas including sport, music, health and social care, hairdressing, catering, childcare, business and more.

There will be information on-hand for individuals aged 19 and above who are looking to study either a professional course in areas such as hairdressing and beauty therapy or accounting or childcare, a short course in a hobby-related area such as digital photography, sewing or floristry, or even an Access to Higher Education 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, the kind of experience they will get in a college classroom, and discover the extra-curricular activities open to them once they become a student. At this event, soon to be school-leavers can book onto taster sessions will take place during the February half-term break (14-18 February)

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.
