Evesham College is inviting anyone interested in finding out about its school leaver courses, apprenticeships and degrees to come to an open evening on Wednesday, November 7, to discover the wide range of courses on offer.

The event, which runs from from 5.30pm to 8pm, will give visitors a chance to look around the college’s specialist facilities, speak to expert staff and talk to current students in order to get the information needed to decide which course or apprenticeship is right for them.

The college’s friendly, impartial student advisers will also be on hand to offer confidential advice on careers and opportunities available. The college offers a wide range of courses, from business to beauty, public services to photography, childhood studies to construction and much more.

A new engineering centre with state-of-the-art facilities has just opened to help meet the growing demand for skilled workers in the area.

Engineering student Sandeep Patta said: “I would definitely recommend going to college for a more practical way of learning.” Fellow student Matthew Smith agreed, “If you like more practical things, I’d definitely recommend the college. It really lets you get hands on and thrive. And it’s really friendly with a good feel about it.”

The college, part of the WCG group of further education colleges, was rated Good in its latest Ofsted report. The events are for students of all ages, at all study levels, whether they are leaving school or looking for an apprenticeship, part-time or higher education course.
