New year, new start open events at Northumberland College

People looking for a new start in the new year are being encouraged to come along to open events taking place at Northumberland College throughout 2019, the first starting Tuesday 8 January.

The events will enable employees wishing to gain new skills, employers looking to train staff, individuals wanting to make a career change or students looking to progress their education, e, to enrol onto further education, high education and apprenticeship courses.

The first open evening will be held from 4.30pm-7pm at the College’s Ashington and Kirkley Hall campuses. Existing and new learners will be able to speak with teaching and support staff regarding which course to opt for.

Peter Nangle, Vice Principal of Curriculum at Northumberland College commented, “This is the first in a series of open events running throughout the year at our campuses.

“Each event is held the first Tuesday of every month and students, employers, employees and those considering education can discuss options available, organise a tour of facilities including our equine, horticulture, veterinary and animal management practices at Kirkley Hall as well as our learning, commercial and multimillion pound STEM centre at Ashington.

“No appointment is necessary and student advisors, as well as members of our business engagement team, will be on hand to offer advice. Hundreds of programmes are available including over 30 higher education courses plus apprenticeships, many of which can be tailored to specific employer needs.”

Northumberland College Help Hub advisors will be available to discuss all possible options and in addition to course advice, the team can provide health, wellbeing and welfare support to ensure students have the help they need.
