Local parent Claire Shaw, from Bolton upon Dearne, recently won high street vouchers in a Barnsley College prize draw.

Claire scooped the prize after attending the college’s Parent Information Evening and completing an evaluation form.

Choosing the right career pathway at the age of 16 can be a daunting task and the aim of the Parent Information Evening is to equip parents with information about college courses so they are able to support their child in making this important decision.

Claire said: “The Parent Information Evening was very interesting, I learned a lot about things I didn’t know including routes into university.  I would recommend other parents to take the time and visit the college, as the information provided is very useful.”

Information Team Leader, Sharon Hellewell, added: “We were pleased to see so many parents turn up to find out what Barnsley College has to offer. The college recognises that for some students choosing a career pathway at the ages of 15 and 16 can be unnerving, so it’s good to see parents widening their knowledge to support their child.”
