Another Open Event success for Eastleigh College
Eastleigh College hosted another well attended Open Event for school leavers’ highlighting the growing importance of technical and professional skills in the workplace environment.
This open event, the first of three for the 2019-20 academic year, experienced a fantastic turnout by potential students and their parents. Attendees discovered first-hand how technical and professional courses offer young people a credible and alternative route to University, employment or further training.
Students were able to see the college’s brand new facilities, talk to tutors and current students, take part in activities and find out more about the range of courses on offer at Eastleigh College.
When commenting on the open event, Lorraine Bowers, the Schools Liaison and Events Lead, explained:
“The evening was a great success! We have received some really positive feedback and it is refreshing to see so many young people thinking about their next steps. A Levels are not for everybody and more importantly they are not the only route towards achieving future goals.”
Caroline Perrett, Lecturer of Media, Marketing and Event Management commented:
“Our open events provide one of the best chances for potential students to ask questions and receive advice from the tutors here, speak to current students first-hand about their College experience and find out more about what type of course would be the best fit for them. It was fantastic to see so many school leavers’ attending yesterday and taking advantage of this opportunity.”
If you missed this event, the next open event is on Wednesday 21st November 2018. To register please click here.
We look forward to welcoming you to our campus!
