Sandwell College is hosting a series of pop-up ‘plan-your-future’ information evenings, which are ideal for those who haven’t decided what to do after they leave school in July – and their parents – every Tuesday and Thursday, 4.30PM to 6.30PM.

The first sessions start on Thursday 11th May at Central Sixth in New Street, West Bromwich, for A Level information, and at Central Campus in Spon Lane, West Bromwich, for information on all other courses.

There is no need to book. Visitors can just come along to explore the college campuses and facilities, meet the tutors, find out about courses and apprenticeships and get impartial advice from highly-qualified advisors.

The majority of Sandwell College’s full-time students are aged 16-18, studying courses designed to give them skills for the modern workplace (such as Automotive Engineering, Beauty Therapy and Web Design).

Many vocational courses for school leavers have 100% pass rates, while a very high proportion of A Level students get straight into university.

A major feature of its provision is an expanding apprenticeship programme and a broad range of training courses designed to meet the needs of regional and local employers.

The college’s state-of-the-art Central Campus includes a specialist automotive centre, beauty and hairdressing salons, computer suites, construction workshops, engineering and science laboratories, fashion and photography studios, a sports hall and a 170-seater theatre – among many other facilities.

Trainee dental nurses practise in a simulated surgery, while Travel and Tourism students train in a real aircraft fuselage.
