A POOLE college provided guidance on the learning options available in a post-lockdown world earlier this month – and will do so again in November.

Bournemouth and Poole College hosted an open event on Wednesday, September 22 for prospective students and adult learners looking to further their education.

The open event, which took place at both the college's North Road and Lansdowne sites from 4-8pm, aimed to provide reassurance and guidance to those concerned about the next steps towards their future career.

Speaking before the event, Principal of Bournemouth and Poole College Diane Grannell said: "After two years of disrupted learning, potential students may be anxious about their next steps, which is why dedicated careers advice, student support and our experienced tutors will all be available during the evening to discuss the courses and options available."

Attendees at both sites had the opportunity to explore the college's wide range of facilities, visit curriculum areas and meet Woody, the college's new 'Comforting Canine'.

Course tutors were on hand to meet and available to discuss subjects with, and career advice was offered to those who required it.

The event provided attendees with the opportunity to enrol onto their chosen courses before the September deadline on the night.

The evening also offered information and advice to those starting in Year 11, adult learners and those interested in Higher Education, amongst many others.
