BLC’s first Open Event of 2024

On Thursday 8th February Buxton & Leek College is opening both its Buxton and Leek campuses between 5:00pm and 7:30pm to allow prospective learners of all ages to take a look around and meet subject specialists. 

A spokesperson from Buxton & Leek College says, “BLC’s Thursday Open Events are the perfect opportunity to have a quick chat with tutors and the Information, Advice, and Guidance team, particularly if calling in after work or school fits better with your schedule.” 

Subject tutors and staff will be on hand to discuss finance options and help you to decide on the best route for you, whatever your age, ability, or ambitions. 

There are plenty of exciting facilities at the Buxton campus, including a simulated hospital ward, seven industry kitchens, a hair & beauty salon, and a childcare nursery. Visitors are also invited to explore the range of subject areas available at the campus, like Public Services, Hospitality & Catering, Sport, Business, Motor Vehicle, and Education & Childcare. 

The Leek campus offers state-of-the-art £8.5 million redeveloped workshops and facilities, including Salon Inspire, a fully equipped hair & beauty salon. The purpose-built Leek School of Art and engineering and carpentry workshops also offer top-spec spaces for trainees. Those attending the Leek campus Open Event will be able to speak to the tutors of a variety of subjects such as Art & Design, Hair & Beauty, Carpentry & Joinery, Engineering and more. 

There are also 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. The Open Event boasts plenty of opportunities to speak to members of the College’s Apprenticeship team about kickstarting their career whilst earning a wage, and drop-in sessions will be available with the team. 

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.
