Cornwall College Camborne is inviting prospective students to explore their options at an open day on Saturday, March 22.

The campus will open from 10am to 12pm to give them a chance to explore the site, find out about available courses, get advice for their future career and experience a taste of student life.

Advisors will also be on hand to offer financial advice, transport information and details of the learning support, Student Xtra activities and Academy Sports Programmes available to students after they enrol. Visitors will also be able to find out more about new courses that will be available in 2014.

The government has increased the current age in which all young people in England must remain in education or training from 16 to 18. This doesn’t necessarily mean that young people have to stay at school as there are other options available such as extended diplomas or apprenticeships.

At Cornwall College Camborne all our courses are vocational, which means they focus on getting you ready for the career you want, through practical skills training and real-work environments and projects. 

A range of foundation degrees, awarded by Plymouth University, which can be studied part-time as well as full-time, are also available at the College and students interested in studying a degree can find out about places that are still available on current courses and enquire about those beginning in September 2014.

There will also be the opportunity to speak to the Student Services team about tuition fees and eligibility for financial aid through the College or government initiatives.

Staff from Cornwall College Business and the recreational courses team will also be available at Camborne to talk to anyone interested in studying a traineeship, apprenticeship, part-time qualification or leisure course, as well as provide information regarding fees, finance and available courses.

Amarjit Basi, Principal and CEO of Cornwall College, said: “As a college, we pride ourselves on providing an excellent range of courses that give our learners the best footing to pursue further study, get on the career ladder, improve their employment prospects or simply do more with their free time. Our tutors are specialists in their fields and all our staff enjoy passing on their knowledge and helping new learners. We also invest a tremendous amount of time and effort in building strong links with employers, so that students undertaking a vocational course will leave us with up to date knowledge and industry-relevant qualifications and experience.”
