The Sixth Form College, Solihull is throwing open its doors on Saturday 13 October for an Open Day, giving young people from Solihull and Birmingham the opportunity to see the range of courses and services we have on offer. The College will be open from 9.30am – 3.30pm, with a last entry time of 2.30pm and all prospective students are asked to come accompanied by a parent or other adult.
With more than 40 courses to choose from at A level and BTEC, the College offers one of the most diverse range of courses for post-GCSE students in the region. Teachers and current students will be available to talk to prospective students and parents at this event and give them more information about what these courses involve and what exciting careers and university courses they can lead to.
College support services will also be on hand to talk to visitors, with staff available to discuss Careers, Employability, Additional Learning Support, Academic Coaching and Enrichment. In addition, representatives from Birmingham City University and the University of Warwick will be at the Widney Manor Road campus for the event, helping students to decide what are their most appropriate subject choices with particular careers in mind.
College Principal Martin Sullivan commented, “Young people in Birmingham and Solihull are lucky to have many post-16 choices open to them. The options can seem a bit overwhelming, but open days provide a fantastic opportunity for these young people to learn more about the options open to them so they can make informed choices. We are looking forward to welcoming many of these young people into College at our Open Day to show them what we can offer to help them get to their preferred career or university destination.”
As well as all the A level and BTEC courses we offer, the College will also be showcasing its impressive range of enrichments. A number of Higher Education institutions support the College’s Specialist Academies, which are enrichments run to support students with particular career ambitions.
