Walsall College is inviting prospective students to come and find out about its range of vocational courses and the careers they lead to at its latest Open Day on Saturday 16th January, between 10am and 2pm.

Careers are available in everything from plumbing to hairdressing and law to childcare with expert tutors on hand to plot your journey to employment. School leavers and adult learners will be able to learn more about one of the West Midlands’ most successful further education colleges, which was rated outstanding by Ofsted in 2013.

The Open Day takes place at Wisemore and Green Lane campuses and visitors can also tour the state-of-the-art facilities and find out why current students love studying here.

“We are exceptionally proud of the fact that 94 per cent of students who completed Level 3 courses in 2014, have successfully progressed into employment, with companies including Jaguar Land Rover, Premier Inn, Walsall Manor Hospital and Interserve, or to higher education.”

He added: “The Open Day is an excellent opportunity to welcome members of the community to have a look around our state-of-the-art facilities and talk to our outstanding tutors about courses. All enquiries are welcome, from school leavers to people looking to change their career direction.”
