BARNSLEY College is hosting its next open day and you are welcome to come along and find the course for you – no matter what your career aspiration.

The college will open its doors on Saturday February 3, from 10am to 1pm, giving you the opportunity to find out about the wide range of career pathways on offer.

There is something for everyone at the college, which is the most successful general further education college in the region, including a range of full and part-time vocational courses, A Levels, apprenticeships, T Levels (technical qualifications) and university-level courses at Barnsley College University Centre.

Whether you’re leaving school this summer and are thinking about your next steps, or you’re an adult looking to gain a higher-level qualification, we can help you achieve your goals.

The open day will allow you to speak to tutors and find out about the career pathways we offer. You can also see what extra help is available if you require financial assistance or additional learning support.

Visitors will be able to see our fantastic facilities across a range of campuses, including the brand-new Automotive Technologies Centre, Barnsley Sixth Form College, SciTech Digital Innovation Hub and the Construction Centre, known as the Cube.

In addition, you can find out more about HN Flex, a newly-introduced study option that enables you to study selected modules of an HNC/D course. HN Flex courses are available in Construction, Digital or Engineering and will be a great option for anyone who wishes to increase their skills and knowledge but is currently unable to commit to studying for an entire qualification.

Mel Jenkinson, director of student recruitment at Barnsley College, said: “Our open days provide an excellent opportunity for prospective students to find out about all the options available. This event is aimed at everyone who wants to find out what courses and careers are available to them.

“Whether you are a school leavers, an employer wanting to upskill your employees, an adult looking to gain new skills to develop their career or start a new hobby, or an individual who wants to take your learning to the next step and study a higher education or professional qualification.”

Abbie Hellewell, a current level four accounting student, commented: “I enjoy coming to Barnsley College - I get great support from tutors even on days I’m not in.

“It’s hard balancing the course with work but it’s rewarding, and the college acknowledges my accomplishments.”
