To celebrate the opening of the new Pioneer Higher Skills Centre and support students’ studies, @KirkleesCollege is offering a free laptop or tablet to new students enrolling on one of its courses at Pioneer Higher Skills Centre in January 2021.
The promotion applies to the first 100 new students aged 18 and over who enrol on either an Access or level 4 HNC course at Pioneer Higher Skills Centre. The laptop or tablet will be available once students have completed the first six weeks of their course. The one-year courses starting in January include Access to HE in Art/Design, Business, Computing and Childhood Studies and also HNC courses in Art and Design (Art Practice, Fashion, Graphic Design and Photography), Business, Computing and Early Childhood Education and Care.
This new incentive is part of the wider objectives of the centre to provide local people with the opportunity to gain qualifications, work skills and enhance their career prospects.
Dedicated to higher education and higher skills, the state-of-the-art facility offers a wide range of vocational courses taught by industry experienced tutors to provide students with hands-on experience in their chosen career path.
Philippa Firth, Assistant Principal for Adults and Higher Education, said:
“We want to ensure that the Pioneer Higher Skills Centre makes higher education more accessible to people in the local community by offering degree level courses on their doorstep. This new promotion will allow us support our new students in their studies and provide them with the opportunity to make informed and ambitious decisions about their future.”
