Students in Cornwall and Devon, and those looking to return to education to realise their dream careers, are getting the opportunity to explore the incredible facilities and wide range of courses on their doorstep.
Everyone is welcome to Cornwall College Saltash when it opens its doors to prospective students on Saturday 17th March, between 10am and midday.
The course offering at Saltash includes hairdressing, beauty therapy, professional cookery, hospitality, plumbing, carpentry and access to higher education.
Head of College, Margaret Butfield, said the event would be the “perfect opportunity for people to learn about the many ways in which they can achieve their goals”.
“We are very proud at Cornwall College Saltash to be able to provide industry-standard training facilities including hair and beauty salons, a state-of-the-art training kitchen, construction skills training centre and a dedicated higher education building, which means we can provide our students with all the experiences and skills necessary for excelling in their future careers.”
“We are also delighted to announce the investment being made into our site with the development of Dynnargh restaurant, which is opening this month. This brand new resource will add to the fantastic opportunities for those learners wishing to achieve internationally recognised qualifications in the hospitality and professional cookery industries.”
“Although students now have to stay in education until they are 18, it does not necessarily mean they have to do so at a school 6th form,” she continued.
“They have the choice of a college course or apprenticeship and this event will help them with that decision making process.”
Level 3 Professional Cookery student, Chloe Spear, said she would “100% recommend studying at Cornwall College Saltash.”
“For anyone looking to follow a career in the catering industry, this is the place to study. We have great experiences including competing in the Major Series South West competition and working in Dynnargh,” Chloe continued.
“I love the course, the lecturers have all been so supportive.”
The College also offers a wide range of course types and progression routes, starting at entry-level and continuing right up to degree-level study.
There are also numerous options to study on full- and part-time courses as well as NVQ and Apprenticeship qualifications.
“I would advise those looking into their options for further study next year to come to our event and find out more,” Margaret continued.
“Friendly and knowledgeable advisors will be on hand to offer insights on all aspects of college life including courses, study programmes, transport, learning support, Cornwall College’s excellent Students’ Union and numerous sporting activities.”
