Furness College is throwing open its doors next month to showcase its facilities to future students.
The college will hold an open day on Saturday June 26 at its Channelside campus for people to find out more about its professional and technical courses.
Visitors will have a chance to tour the campus from 10am to 2pm, meet staff and speak to students about their route to apprenticeships, university or future careers.
Furness College principal and chief executive Professor Andrew Wren said the events are open to anyone from year 10 and year 11 pupils through to adults who want to enhance their career prospects.
He said: “It has been a tough few terms in education, particularly for the year 11 pupils who are leaving school this week and may have not had a chance to step inside the college where they are hoping to study in September.
“We are delighted to have this opportunity to meet our future students. It is the first Open Day we have had since November 2019 and we encourage them to come along to see inside the classrooms and workshops where they will learn and meet our wonderful tutors.
“It’s also a good chance for people who are thinking about a career change to come along and get some advice about courses that can support them into new roles.”
The college is also running year 11 Experience Sixth Form days at the Rating Lane campus with local schools including Dowdales, Chetwynde, St Bernard’s, Furness Academy, Walney School, Millom School, Ulverston Victoria High School and John Ruskin.
It will give pupils in year 11 who are thinking about studying at sixth form the chance to spend an afternoon as a sixth former, try a taster A-level and speak to current students about courses and college life at a subject fair.
