From education to employment

New adult course guide launched

HUNDREDS of people visited Weston College’s latest open evening, which marked the formal launch of the new Adult and Part-time Course Guide.

But don’t worry if you missed out; there are plenty of other opportunities coming up if you are interested in visiting the College to find out more about the new adult and part-time provision.

A total of 267 individuals registered at the open evening on Wednesday (15th June), at the Knightstone Campus, many of whom were accompanied by family members and friends.

More than 50 of them enrolled for courses on the night.

Visitors were among the first to get their hands on the new Adult and Part-time Course Guide, which contains details of the new provision.

As well as being able to talk to curriculum staff about the wide range of courses on offer, visitors could seek financial advice and also actually enrol on the night and pay for their courses.

Several areas also staged some practical demonstrations, including health and social care, hair and beauty, and in the College’s training kitchens.

If you are thinking about taking up an adult or part-time course at Weston College, there are still plenty of opportunities to come and speak to staff and find out more.

For the first time, the College is offering two dedicated Adult Careers Guidance Surgeries.

These will take place in the Guidance Suite on the ground floor of the Knightstone Campus between 2pm and 4pm on Wednesday 22nd June and Wednesday 29th June.

Visitors will be able to talk about the range of courses on offer and any discuss financial issues they might have.

No appointment is necessary, visitors can just turn up on the day.

If those dates are not convenient, the College is holding an additional open evening on Wednesday 24th August at the Knightstone Campus between 6pm and 8pm.

Some individual faculties will also be holding their own taster sessions during the course of the summer.

The first of these is on Monday 27th June, when the Business, Management and IT faculty (BMIT) will hold taster sessions at the Knightstone Campus between 5pm and 7pm.

Visitors will be able to find out more about management, CIPD (HR), ECDL (IT), AAT (Accounting), Business and Computing courses. For more information on these sessions, call 01934 411 523.

In September the Creative Arts faculty is hosting a series of free taster sessions in everything from interior design to ceramics to making movies.
