BOURNEMOUTH & Poole College is hosting its first series of virtual open events in June to provide students with important information whilst adhering to social distancing guidelines.

Staff will be virtually providing information on a wide range of courses at the College, as well as extensive careers advice and top tips on how to boost your CV.

Prospective students and parents will also have the opportunity to also ask any questions during each session.

Vice Principal for Curriculum at Bournemouth & Poole College, Jacqueline Page said: "We wanted to create an innovative way to still be able to host our June open event in the current times and hope to demonstrate that we are committed to supporting students’ careers throughout the current circumstances and beyond.

"We decided to host three separate events to allow for each further education option to be given the dedicated focus it requires. We hope that the events give piece of mind to students and provide them with insight into life at the College."

The session topics are as follows: Full-time courses and apprenticeships on June 11, degree level and access to high education on June 18 and adult skills on June 25.

These online sessions will take place every Thursday from June 11 to June 25, 9am-6pm, and attendees will be able to join the virtual event through Zoom, the video conferencing service.

The College will be recording the live sessions with lecturers for people to watch back if they’re unable to join the event or wish to re-watch at a later date.

The schedule for each open event can be found online.
