Published: November 12, 2021

Telford College is opening the doors of its campus next week for another face-to-face open event.

The Haybridge campus in Wellington will be open from 5pm to 7.30pm on November 17, with a special focus on the new range of adult courses which begin in January.

They include several Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD) programmes, HNC and HND courses in business, plus management, accounting, maths, English and digital skills.

The college’s latest range of HGV training courses, and distance learning programmes, will also be in the spotlight.

Student ambassadors and staff will be on hand to lead guided tours of the campus throughout the event, showcasing facilities and answering questions.

It is a chance to see the college’s creative media hub and music studios, £3.5 million automotive centre and workshops, on-site hair and beauty salon and catering kitchens, and the £3 million Discovery Centre for aviation and engineering courses.

Tours will also be available around the college’s 7th Form A level centre, plus the construction zone, sport and public uniformed services training facilities, and study centres for business, computing and apprenticeships.

Last month the college held its first face-to-face open event in nearly two years, and it was a huge success.

A survey showed that 95% of those who attended the event rated it as either good or excellent, with more than nine out of 10 people saying they would be likely to refer others to Telford College as a result.

Telford College principal and chief executive Graham Guest said: “After such a challenging and unpredictable year for us all, it is fabulous to be hosting open events on campus once again.

“Potential new students were buzzing with excitement to explore the campus and discuss course options with the staff at our last event, and we’re gearing up for more of the same.

“We will be showcasing our university-standard facilities, and a dynamic new curriculum and course guide which has been designed in close partnership with local employers.

“We are proud that our results place us in the top 10% of the UK’s education providers, with 99% of our A level students receiving offers from their first-choice university.

“The open event is the perfect opportunity to speak to our students, and staff, about the courses on offer, and college life.”

The college’s student hub will also be open for information about grants, transport, and other support on offer to students.
