Carlisle College opens its doors to future students

Carlisle College will welcome potential future students and their families to their first open event of the year on the evening of Thursday 18th January.

Carlisle College will open its doors to hundreds of potential future students who are invited to drop in on the evening between 4pm and 8pm to see the multimillion pound facilities and meet the team of highly qualified staff.

Staff with a wealth of industry experience will be on hand on the evening to offer top tips on how to realise career ambitions and find the right course.

Carlisle College has over 100 courses available from entry level through to degrees ranging from teaching, plumbing, accountancy to health and social care to name but a few.

Advice and Guidance will also be available on the extensive range of Apprenticeship programmes at Carlisle College.  With significant growth year on year, Carlisle College now works with over 350 leading employers in the local area, helping over 600 students to secure apprenticeships.

Carlisle College continues to enjoy success with student numbers continuing to grow and was graded as a Good provider by Ofsted in 2016 who identified that Learners and apprentices continue to receive good education and training, recognising that the College provides excellent care, support and guidance, which learners and apprentices value greatly, and which ensures that they make good progress.  Provision was praised for meeting local and regional needs well, with a good focus on an employer-led curriculum which results in a high number of learners progressing into employment.

Last year Carlisle College joined NCG, one of the largest not-for-profit education and training groups in the UK, which includes Newcastle College, and provides a firm basis for future growth and development.

Andy Dodds, Director at Carlisle College, said “the key to success for students at Carlisle College is our real focus on their ambitions, whether that is to go to University, gain an Apprenticeship or go into employment.  All of the courses at Carlisle College prepare students for their next step and I would encourage everyone to come and find out what the College has to offer, particularly those finishing their GCSE exams this year to discover a real alternative to school sixth form”.

To secure a place on a course for September 2018, applications can be made at the open evening or on the College website. To attend the Open Evening register on-line at or drop in anytime between 4pm – 8pm.
