Young people due to leave school in the summer can find out how to get paid while they learn at an open evening at City of Wolverhampton College next month.  

The college’s three main campuses – Paget Road in Compton, Wellington Road in Bilston and Metro One in the city centre – will be open on Wednesday 8 March, 4pm-7pm, for people to get information on combining earning and learning on an apprenticeship scheme as well as details of full-time courses starting in September.

Visitors will be able to chat to advisers about apprenticeships in business, construction, creative industries, engineering, hairdressing, health, hospitality, motor vehicle, science and teaching, and find out about vacancies with employers in the local area.     

Tutors will also be on hand with information on full-time industry-recognised qualifications, a range of A Level courses, and part-time university-level programmes including HNCs, HNDs and foundation degrees.

Those attending can apply for their chosen course whilst at the event, have an interview with a member of the college’s admissions team and, subject to entry criteria, leave with an offer of a place to start their qualification later in the year.
