As an added incentive, there is the chance to win an iPad on registration in a randomly selected free giveaway.

Two school leavers who registered for the last set of virtual events and will be starting courses with the college in September, were happy to win iPads.

Annabelle said: “BMet’s Sutton Coldfield College stood out immediately to me. The onsite facilities, student support and courses offered are second to none.

“I decided to apply for A level courses in psychology, sociology and English Language. My plan is to work within social work, with a possible lead into Criminal Psychology. Working with and helping others with mental health issues, has always been appealing to me and hopefully these courses will provide me with a solid groundwork to get into this field.

“Winning the IPad has been unbelievable and I’m so grateful! This will help me greatly with my coursework and studies. I cannot wait to get started at BMet and put this wonderful prize to use.”

Hawa said: “I’m so glad that I will be going to Matthew Boulton this year and I’ll be studying health and social care.

“I have chosen to study this course because I would love to become a midwife when I’m older. It excites me to be able to help people when they are in such a beautiful moment of their lives and I hope that the college could help me take a step further into my future.

“I’m so thankful for the iPad which was so unexpected and I’m even more excited to go to the college and start learning.”

The live and recorded virtual open events are being run via Zoom video and are bookable online now
