Get a taste of college life

Prospective students can find out more about college life at open events.

Northumberland College will host open evenings at its Kirkley Hall and Ashington campuses next week for visitors to find out about courses available to start now and in September.

During half-term, there will be a range of hands-on workshops to give a taster of courses and facilities, such as engineering, character design, animal care, hairdressing, beauty, catering, sport and welding

The workshops are open to all ages, but would be particularly useful for Year 11 students considering their next steps after GCSE.

The open evening is at both campuses on Tuesday, from 4.30pm to 7pm. The workshops are on Wednesday, February 18, and booking is essential. Call 01670 841200 to book a place, or for more information see
