The new-look Shrewsbury College is opening it’s doors and it’s not too late to enrol
This September a new-look Shrewsbury College is opening its doors to hundreds of new learners – and it’s not too late to apply if you want to be one of them.
New facilities include a dedicated student zone, a new student learning centre, more parking, Origins commercial restaurant, the new Evolve hair and beauty salon plus much more.
So whether you are hoping to return to part-time learning or just take up the new hobby or skill you have always wanted to, there is still time to enrol at your local College.
Subjects include Accounting, Hair, Beauty & Therapies, Languages, Digital Photography, Excel workshop and Basic Brickwork among many others.
Emily Jones, 24, studied the ABC Level 3 Certificate in Counselling Skills, which takes place over four hours on a Wednesday evening. She said: “I chose the counselling skills course at Shrewsbury College as it will allow me to develop useful skills that are transferable across professions.
“It also gives me the option to progress to study Counselling at a higher level. The course offers a balance of supported learning and individual study and as it is part-time I have the time to complete research that contributes towards assignments.
“On the course, theory is not the most important aspect which is extremely refreshing. Instead personal experiences and feelings are just as key to learning. This is also reflected in the learning environment as the warm inviting atmosphere is not reminiscent of a traditional classroom, which is particularly pleasant after a day at work.”
The College is holding advice events on 9 and 11 September from 5-7pm.
There is also an event tomorrow (5 September) from 10am to 1.45pm to get advice on a special year- long programme of study of six GCSEs including maths, English, Science and Languages.
Additionally there is a special drop in advice event at the College’s Origins Restaurant on London Road on Monday (8 September) from 5-7pm for anyone specifically interested in higher level Health & Social Care, Counselling and Education courses.
