Open days to offer advice on courses

TWO college open events will be held to help learners find out more about courses.

Northumberland College will host both open evenings next week.

The first will take place on Tuesday at the Ashington campus in College Road for people to find out about the range of courses on offer there, such as hair and beauty, early years, construction and travel and tourism.

And on Wednesday, the Kirkley Hall campus near Ponteland will throw open its doors to highlight its courses linked to the rural economy, such as agriculture, horticulture, animal care, outdoor sport and renewable energy.

Tutors will attend both events to advise on full and part-time courses, as well as give information about the various bursaries and grants that are available for students to help with the costs of learning.

Anyone interested in the courses will be able to enrol immediately.

Both events run from 4.30pm to 7pm.
