THERE is so much more to further education than A Levels, and New College Durham is opening its doors to prospective students who maybe want to try something a bit different.

You won’t know what’s on offer unless you come along and see for yourself, so come and try out the subjects on offer in the School of Tourism, Digital and Creative Industries. Sound interesting?

The areas that will be represented on the Open Day include: Professional Catering & Hospitality, Music, Travel & Tourism, Performing Arts, Hair & Beauty, Graphic Design, IT & Computing, Art & Design, Photography and Media.

If you would like to try out any of these courses, there will be workshops for you and your parents/carers to take part in, getting hands-on with the equipment you would be using and learning all about what’s involved in studying that subject.

JUST thinking about enrolling in college is a big decision, and it’s natural to have lots of questions, or feel nervous about taking that next step.

But, if you want to kick start, or advance your learning journey, New College Durham is holding a Support Services Open Day to give anyone who’s thought about enrolling, a chance to address any worries or questions they might have.
