New Year- New Start


West Cheshire College has announced a series of short courses running in January 2014 aimed at anybody who is not in education, have left school or are looking to develop their skills further in preparation for work.

Whether you are currently studying A Levels or a BTEC qualification that isn’t right for you, or if you are looking to further your studies, then you can choose to sign up to one of the College’s three-week courses starting 16 January 2014.

All the courses are designed to give students an introduction into the industry of their choice and provide them with the right skills to continue with their studies or start employment.

All of the Level 1 short courses last for three weeks and run over two days a week.

The courses available are:

  • Introduction to Construction which covers brickwork, carpentry and joinery and plumbing
  • Introduction to Sport which includes taking part in sport at Northgate Arena
  • Introduction to Enterprise
  • Introduction to Foundation Learning which focusses on horticulture
  • Introduction to Performing Arts which covers music and drama
  • Introduction to Creative Media which covers art, games design and social media
  • Introduction to Hair and Beauty which covers hair, beauty and retail

Helen Nellist, Vice Principal at West Cheshire College, said: “It is not too late to sign up to a course for the New Year. The courses are an ideal way for students to get a taster of what studying a full-time course at the College entails.

“Our courses are delivered in an environment which reflects real working life and provides students with the skills and qualifications that employers are looking for.

“It is now a legal requirement for all young people to stay in education or training until the age of 17. Young people might have left school and chosen the wrong route for them so we are letting them know what other options are available for them.”
