The Open Evening will also give you the opportunity to see the 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.
Visitors will have the chance 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.
