Southport College Advice Evening Thursday 13 June 4.00pm-7.30pm

The College is throwing its doors open on Thursday 13 June between 4.00 and 7.30pm. Students of all ages are invited to attend their advice evening to help with selecting study options for September 2013.

Adults can collect a copy of their brand-new course guide and talk to tutors about the range of subjects available to study from September 2013.  If you are aged 24 or over you can also return to learning and choose from a range of career building courses with no up- front course fees.  If you’re going to study on a course at Level 3 or 4 you can now apply for a loan to help with the cost of your course. They have an amazing range of courses to choose from including:

·         Access to Higher Education courses

·         Accountancy (AAT)

·         Counselling

·         Electrical

·         Gas

·         Teaching Assistant

And if the loan is for an Access to Higher Education course and you subsequently go on to complete a higher education course, you don’t have to pay the loan back.

If you are leaving school soon and haven’t applied for a place at Southport College yet or are unsure about the course you would like to study then don’t panic as it is not too late! Tutors and Student Services teams will be available for a chat about the next steps after GCSEs.

Southport College also works with local businesses to provide training for their apprentices. They have a number of vacancies with local businesses for apprenticeships that need filling. If you are looking for work at the moment then come along on the night to register your CV so employers can check your suitability for their vacancies. You will also be able to discuss apprenticeship options with their team who will explain just how they work.

And don’t forget they now offer a range of university level qualifications right on your doorstep in the form of HND/HNC and Foundation Degrees. Staff from their new Higher Education centre will be able to discuss your course choices with you.

There has never been a better time to study at Southport College. For further details about their Advice and Guidance evening, visit, call 01704 392704 or email
