Chesterfield College to hold virtual events to help people plan for September


Chesterfield College is holding a series of virtual events to help people get the information they need to make the right choice about their future study options. The college is inviting school leavers, and adults who want to retrain or develop their skills, to join any of their virtual events taking place throughout May and June.

A virtual open day takes place on Wednesday 3 June between 4 and 6pm and a new series of ‘Live at Lunchtime’ chats on Instagram are taking place on Mondays and Wednesdays.

The virtual events will demonstrate the range of courses available in September, from beauty to engineering or digital technologies to vehicle refinishing. They will provide an opportunity to explore all the study options available.

The virtual open day will include video interviews with staff from every area of study as well as the different support teams across the college. Advisors with specialist knowledge on academic support, finance, travel and other aspects of college life will be on hand to answer questions via a live chat during the event.

During the Instagram ‘Live at Lunchtime’ chats, you can hear from special guests across the college as they talk about studying particular subjects and what other aspects of college life they can expect.

Julie Richards (right), principal and Chief Executive of Chesterfield College said; “It has never been more important to focus on the future and although we can’t hold our normal open days right now, we hope these virtual events will help people get the information they need to make the best choices to be ready for September.

“I want to reassure everyone in our community that there is a place for you at Chesterfield College. We’re still teaching and helping our students to learn the skills they need for the careers they want. We’re helping to train the next generation of healthcare workers, engineers, scientists and many other professions our economy needs now and in the future. When the new academic year starts we will be here to support all our new and returning students and apprentices to secure a positive start to their studies.”

You can register to take part in the virtual open day here and all the joining information will be sent to you.
