About the event
Will you be leaving school in 2020 or thinking about Higher Education?
If you’re trying to decide what to do next then come and visit us at our Open Day and we will show you what we have to offer you. You will have the opportunity to find out about the wide range of career pathways offered and see the fantastic facilities at Barnsley College’s Open Day on Saturday 23 November 2019 11.00am to 2.00pm.
We are the most successful general further education college in the region offering over 300 vocational, Apprenticeship, technical (T Levels), part-time and Higher Education pathways. With courses ranging from Catering and Hospitality to Beauty Therapy; Business and Management to Construction; and Engineering to Music, there is something for everyone.
You and your parents/carers will have the opportunity to speak to tutors, attend presentations, find out about the range of support services available to you, and take a look around the buildings to see our great facilities.
Wigfield Farm will also be open to the public if you’re interested in our Animal Care and Horticulture courses. There will be a coach to take people from Old Mill Lane to Wigfield Farm and back.
