‘Virtual’ open event will showcase campus, and new courses

Published: May 26, 2020

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

The event, which launches on June 3, will include in-depth looks at the college’s different curriculum areas, and a chance to hear from students and staff.

An interactive map will allow prospective students to click on curriculum areas of interest, and open up videos, 360-degree images, and apply for course places, or ask questions.

They will be able to find out about the college’s £2.5 million 7th Form building for A level studies, plus a wide range of vocational studies from music to manufacturing, health, hair and beauty, sport, and much more.

Graham Guest, principal and chief executive, said: “This virtual open event is a chance for people to learn all about our courses, experience our high standard facilities, and discover our exciting plans for the next academic year.

“You will have an opportunity to meet some of our course tutors, and ask them some questions.

“Normally at this time of year we would be inviting people to visit the campus in person, but we are having to find new ways of interacting with current and prospective students in these unprecedented times.”

The college has found creative new ways of delivering its curriculum during lockdown using new technology, and the application process is now under way for the 2020/21 academic year, starting in September.

Video interviews are available for potential candidates – full details can be found at www.telfordcollege.ac.uk/apply.

To register for the virtual open event, see www.telfordcollege.ac.uk/open-events, or log onto www.telfordcollege.ac.uk from June 3.

The virtual open event will remain available on the Telford College website, and through its social media channels, for the rest of the summer.
