Advice on offer at Buxton & Leek College’s May 2024 Open Event

On Thursday 16th May 2024 Buxton & Leek College is holding an Open Event where prospective students and their parents can speak to staff and tutors and have any last-minute questions answered before applying. 

Jenn Aspinall, Student Recruitment Team Leader, says “At BLC we’re invested in supporting our students from the moment they step through the door, and our evening events are the perfect opportunity to get to know the tutors, College, and have reassuring conversations about next steps.” 

Weeknight Open Events at the College offer the perfect setting to drop in for a brew and a chat, particularly if calling in after work or school fits better with your schedule.  

Individuals looking for a more hands-on approach to learning can speak to members of the College’s Apprenticeship team about kickstarting their career whilst earning a wage. There are Apprenticeship routes available in a wide range of subject areas, so from Carpentry to Culinary BLC can help you to build a career in an industry you have a real passion for. 

BLC has courses for learners of all ages and abilities and is urging adult learners to attend the Open Event to find out what’s on offer. There are study programmes and short courses available for adults looking to pursue new passions, as well as programmes to aid career progression. Buxton & Leek College understands how difficult it can be to juggle work and family life, so their programmes can be studied in a variety of different ways. As well as the face-to-face, on campus learning, students can also benefit from part time, online, and on demand learning – all with access to the College’s passionate, dedicated, and supportive teaching staff. 

Alongside information about the variety of apprenticeships, full-time and part-time study programmes, attendees can also discuss finance options and travel arrangements with Buxton & Leek College’s friendly Progress Coaches.
