News story LC Virtual open days 3

Southwark College held the first of its live virtual events, hosting a series of Open Days online for young people and adults to find out more about the College and access course advice and guidance during the lockdown.

The events covered a range of student support services and curriculum areas, including Science & Maths, Health & Social Care, Travel & Tourism, Professional, Creative Arts, ESOL, IELTS and English, Supported Learning, Access to Higher Education, Apprenticeships, Employability and Distance Learning.

Each event included the opportunity to ask questions about courses and meet the College Principal and teachers, who provided further information on the College’s new courses for 2020 and explain how learners could continue to study remotely and in College campuses under the new government guidance.

The Student Services and Careers team were also available to explain the admissions process and provide advice and guidance to those who were not sure what to study next, offering prospective students the chance to experience College life and speak to our staff without leaving their homes.

Annette Cast, Principal at Southwark College, said: "The Virtual Open Days are a great way to find out more about our courses and the Southwark student experience whilst we work remotely.

"We remain committed to ensuring the wellbeing of our staff, students and visitors as we all adjust to the current situation and I want to reassure you that the College is looking forward to welcoming new and continuing students in September 2020."
