Staff, students and parents to star in virtual open event

Published: November 17, 2020

Telford College is holding a virtual open event this week to showcase its university-standard facilities and range of courses for the next academic year.

The event includes in-depth looks at the college’s vocational areas, plus apprenticeships, and special educational needs and disability (SEND) provision.

There will be video question-and-answer sessions with staff, students, and parents during the event runs from 6pm to 8pm on Wednesday November 18. To register, see www.telfordcollege.ac.uk/open-events/

Sue Alder, the college’s director of student services and marketing, said: “We’re all having to find different ways of staying in touch right now – and Telford College is no exception.

“Normally at this time of year, we would be opening our doors for an action-packed open event to showcase the new courses and facilities.

“But this year, since students can’t come to us . . . we’re coming to them instead!

“The aim is to offer impartial, practical advice and guidance to give a flavour of each subject area, from the skills and qualifications needed, through to the type of career paths that could open up.

“We will be explaining all about our blended learning timetable and what’s being done around the campus to make students feel safe in this Covid-19 world, and giving people a taste of what Telford College life is all about.”

After lockdown, Telford College will also be running a series of individual VIP tours, giving prospective students a chance to look round the campus and receive one-to-one help and support in a Covid-compliant environment.
