College welcomes prospective students

Have your say

Calderdale College held an interactive open evening to give prospective students a taste of college life.

More than 30 interactive taster sessions were offered on a range of courses from animal care and art to catering, music and more.

Culinary creative youngsters were given the opportunity to cook up a storm in the college kitchens, budding musicians could record live musical performances, creative choreographers tried out some moves, and stylists who think they can cut it got to have a go on the college salon floor.

Joseph Alderson, a prospective joinery student, said: “The activity was fun and interesting.

“I like engineering and woodwork and I am hoping to study joinery or electronic engineering at university.”

Visitors were able to tour Calderdale College, speak with existing students to see what college life is really 
like and meet with tutors to find out if the course is for them.

Chris Jones, principal at Calderdale College said: 
“Our open evening was a 
great success with more than 250 prospective students in attendance. It was a 
great opportunity for students, parents and carers to find out about the college and the courses on offer and how it can lead to self-employment, employment or further study.”
