The event comes just over a year af­ter the merger between Coven­try Col­lege and Hen­ley Col­lege, with dif­fer­ent cour­ses be­ing of­fered from each site.

There will also be a ded­i­cated ap­pren­tice­ship zone dur­ing the event, high­light­ing a strong com­mit­ment to get­ting learn­ers into paid work­ing ex­pe­ri­ence.

As­sis­tance prin­ci­pal for busi­ness growth, Gemma Knott, said: “We are look­ing for­ward to wel­com­ing young peo­ple who want to learn a skill that could shape the rest of their ca­reers and lives. We have in­cred­i­ble fa­cil­i­ties, ex­cel­lent tu­tors and strong busi­ness links to en­sure our learn­ers are ready to go into work. Whether you want to learn more about pho­tog­ra­phy, forge a ca­reer in per­form­ing arts, or take on an ap­pren­tice­ship, we will have peo­ple on hand at our open event to show you how to take those cru­cial first steps. Our open events are a great op­por­tu­nity for learn­ers and par­ents to see our amaz­ing fa­cil­i­ties, chat to staff and stu­dents about par­tic­u­lar cour­ses and learn more about col­lege life in gen­eral.”

There will also be par­ent talks and live mu­sic on the evening, while model class­rooms will be avail­able to view in or­der to gauge an au­then­tic ex­pe­ri­ence of a day in the life of a stu­dent. For more in­for­ma­tion visit coven­trycol­lege.ac.uk or call 02476 932 932.
