City College Brighton and Hove expects admission enquiries to soar
Having been confirmed once again as Sussex’s top-achieving college for 16 to 18-year-olds, City College’s student support teams are raring to go for the busiest time of the year.
Enquiries and visitors to the Pelham Street Student Centre are predicted to soar as young people come to explore the many options available to them at City College.
The friendly and professional team are available to school-leavers to chat about what courses are open to them based on their results and availability of places.
Exciting options include acting and dance, music technology, public services and business as well as practical trades such as plumbing and painting and decorating.
Kate Edwards, City College’s head of student services, said: “The team find August an incredibly rewarding time as they’re helping so many young people make a positive move for their futures.
“Making the transition from school to college is a big step for students so we ensure that they get plenty of support and encouragement throughout their time with us.”
The courses the college runs are vocational and provide high quality industry recognised training.
This is a great way to study and equip students with the key skills needed to progress into work or on to higher education courses.
City College knows that employers value work based skills as well as qualifications so its courses are designed to equip students with the qualities that employers require.
The college’s facilities reflect that, from its industry standard training kitchens to life-size construction rigs, specialist electrical facilities, theatre, training restaurant and hair and beauty salons.
Many of these facilities are open to the public and serve real clients.
