DCG’s open evenings to show broad range of learning opportunities on offer

With so much on offer, there really is something to capture everyone’s interest at the open evenings. 

Spaces for the events are going quickly. For example, The Joseph Wright Open Evening now has less than 200 spaces remaining.  

The free open evenings will give visitors a greater understanding of the expansive options on offer. At the events, visitors will have the opportunity to:  

– Explore the wide range of courses, from vocational and apprenticeship programs to A-levels and university-level qualifications.
– Engage with experienced tutors who are dedicated to empowering students and helping them achieve their goals. 
– Experience the modern campuses, equipped with the latest technology and resources to support the learning journey.
– Discover the extensive support services available to help students thrive.

Each of the DCG’s four colleges have distinct offerings as follows: 

The Community College, Ilkeston, which offers adult learning opportunities ranging from bricklaying to counselling skills to qualifications for teaching assistants.
The Joseph Wright Centre will outline information about A Levels to retail to music and the performing Arts.
The Roundhouse will show its broad offering, including Engineering to professional construction to hairdressing.  
Broomfield Hall will show all that is on offer, including agriculture to dog grooming to sport. 

Kate Martin, Deputy Principle, commented on the events:
“Attending one of our open evenings is a valuable opportunity for prospective students to explore and understand what they may choose for their future.  

“It gives them an insight into the college environment, and around our ethos, along with the academic programs, and the overall atmosphere of the college.  

“This first-hand experience allows students to make informed decisions about their further education, ensuring that they find the right fit for their goals, interests, and aspirations.”
