What Does Your Future Hold?

30.10.2014

CYO

 

Tresham will be holding open evenings next week at each campus for young people and adults to visit and find out more about the courses on offer and how they can create their own future by ordering their own personalised prospectus.

 

 

The open evenings will be held from 5.30pm to 7.30pm as each campus as follows:

  • Monday 3rd November at the Corby campus (Oakley Road)
  • Tuesday 4th November at the Wellingborough campus (Church Street)
  • Thursday 6th November at the Kettering campus (Windmill Avenue)

Since the raise in participation age came into effect, many young people are not aware of the different ways they can stay in education after finishing their GCSEs and that it doesn’t mean that they have to stay at school.

A Levels at the 6a centre are offered in ‘professional pathways’ to help lead to six broad career categories after university. However, for some, A Levels may not be the only option to consider.

Vocational courses in a range of industries are available at all levels and provide the option to progress to university. BTECs and other vocational qualifications provide UCAS points the same as A Levels and, depending on the university course, can better prepare students for degree level study.

Apprenticeships are an ideal way to learn whilst you earn a wage and can be a great way to get that first step on the career ladder if you know the industry you wish to work within. Each year more and more young people and adults choose to study this way and they progress from studying post GCSE to studying part time at degree level or setting up their own businesses.

Tutors from all course areas will be available at the campus and the customer services team will be on hand to offer specific advice about the financial and individual support available whilst learning.
