College opens up

TWO open events will be held to help people find out about hundreds of college courses and apprenticeships.

Northumberland College is running the open evenings next week.

On Tuesday, the Ashington campus will invite prospective students to discuss a wide range of courses, including hair and beauty, early years, construction and tourism.

And the following evening the college’s Kirkley Hall campus near Ponteland will showcase its subjects, such as agriculture, horticulture, animal care, outdoor sport and renewable energies.

Tutors will be available to give advice on the full and part-time courses available and people will be able to apply for them immediately.

Both events run from 4.30pm to 7pm.
