Stirling Campus hosts Open Evening
An open event promoting courses and apprenticeship opportunities available at Forth Valley College attracted more than 200 people to the Stirling Campus recently (Thursday 9 November).
Representatives from the College’s teaching departments and Business Development Team were on hand to offer advice and guidance on the wide range of courses available at the College including full-time courses from access to Degree level, Modern Apprenticeships, new 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 College welcomed a wide range of partners from industry to promote career opportunities and current vacancies and Skills Development Scotland were also in attendance to give advice and the event included campus tours.
Forth Valley College launched their 2018/19 Prospectus recently and are encouraging people to apply online now for full-time courses available from January and August 2018 and live apprenticeship vacancies in life sciences and engineering, starting in August 2018.
Another open event is planned for the Alloa Campus on Tuesday 14 November from 4.00pm – 7.00pm. The Falkirk hosted an event on Wednesday 1 November.
Dr Ken Thomson, Principal for 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. They’re also really useful if you’re considering applying to college but have questions surrounding student finance or the application process for example – and also an excellent opportunity to speak with a large number of employers who are exhibiting this year, top find out what qualifications they are looking for.”
