College opens its doors

WOULD-BE learners can find out about hundreds of courses and apprenticeships at Northumberland College open evenings.

The Ashington campus in College Road will open its doors on Tuesday evening for people to discover its courses, including hair and beauty, early years, construction, art and design and travel and tourism.

On Wednesday, it will be the turn of the Kirkley Hall campus near Ponteland, focusing on courses linked to the rural economy, such as agriculture, horticulture, floristry, animal care, veterinary nursing, equine studies, outdoor sport and renewable energy.

Tutors will advise on the range of full and part-time courses available, as well as provide information on bursaries and grants to help with the cost of studying.

Both sessions will run from 4.30pm to 7pm.
