FVC Open Evenings held at Stirling and Falkirk
Falkirk Open Evening

Two open evening events promoting courses and apprenticeship opportunities available at Forth Valley College – and providing visitors with the opportunity to explore campus facilities – attracted several potential new students.


Representatives from the College’s teaching departments and Business Development Team were on hand - at the Stirling Campus on Tuesday 13  December and the Falkirk Campus on Thursday 15 December -  to offer advice and guidance on the wide range of courses available including full-time courses, Partnership Degrees with Scotland’s leading universities, Modern Apprenticeships, Foundation Apprenticeships, evening courses, business training courses and flexible learning programmes.  


In addition, support teams were available to offer careers advice and answer questions on funding, learning support and applying to college. The Open Evenings also served as a great opportunity for potential students and their families to get a look around FVC’s fantastic buildings and meet the College teams face to face, who helped them make an informed decision about which course is right for them.


Several local employers were also in attendance offering advice and information on what skills and qualifications they are looking for from potential new employees.


Professor Ken Thomson, Principal of Forth Valley College said: “Our open evenings offer a fantastic opportunity for people to come along and find out about the different options available to them – whether they’re interested in a mainstream course, finding out about Modern Apprenticeship vacancies currently on offer, thinking about studying for a Foundation Apprenticeship while still at school or pursuing a degree. 


“These events are also really useful for those considering applying to college, but have questions surrounding student finance or the application process for example – and they’re also an excellent opportunity to find out what qualifications employers are looking for.”
