Carlisle College will welcome potential future students and their families to their first open event of the year, on the evening of Thursday 17th January 2019, where those exploring their options for September are invited to drop in anytime between 4pm and 8pm on the evening to find out more.
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. These include a wide range of Diploma Courses which are worth up to 3 A-Levels and provide a perfect alternative to school sixth form, allowing you to specialise in your chosen subject area and progress onto university – in fact we have over 200 students applying to university through UCAS each year.
Advice and Guidance will also be available on the extensive range of Apprenticeship programmes at Carlisle College which allow you to combine earning in the workplace with study. With significant growth year on year, Carlisle College now works with over 350 leading employers in the local area, helping over 300 students a year to secure apprenticeships in a variety of subject areas including construction, business and accounting.
Our open evening will also give you the opportunity to see our multi-million pound facilities that reflect those found in industry, including the £5.3m Carlisle College of the Arts which houses top of the range media editing suites and rehearsal rooms, the motor vehicle workshop which boats 7 ramps with all the latest equipment and MOT Test bay. Furthermore, with more students choosing to study at Carlisle College, recent expansion has seen a takeover of part of the former Newman School site bringing dedicated and newly opened sports hall and facilities.
Visitors will also have the opportunity to meet the team of highly qualified staff who are experts in their field and who will be on hand to offer top tips on how to realise your career ambitions and find the right course for you.
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 we would encourage everyone to come and find out what the College has to offer.”
To secure a place on a course for September 2019, applications can be made on the College website or at the open evening. To attend the Open Evening register on-line at www.carlisle.ac.uk or drop in anytime between 4pm – 8pm.
