Three local colleges have joined forces to help secure Rotherham as the top place to go to get a quality education.
Rotherham College of Arts and Technology, Dearne Valley College and Thomas Rotherham College have launched a series of joint career events to help those needing advice on how to take their education forward.
The events will be taking place throughout July and staff from all three colleges will be available to provide information on courses, advice on which routes to take and guidance to those who just need a helping hand.
Carly Jones, Head of Marketing at Rotherham College of Arts and Technology said:
“Rotherham is a top quality provider in education and the town has three dedicated colleges which will offer something for everyone. Whether you’re looking for A Levels, or the more vocational hands-on route of NVQs and Diplomas, we can help.
“We have pathways into higher education, university and employment so Rotherham is bursting with opportunities to get you to your dream career.”
Councillor Paul Lakin, Cabinet Member for Children, Young People and Families Services, said: “It’s vitally important that young people get the best possible education to prepare them for the future and Rotherham colleges do a great job to provide a wide range of courses to suit people’s learning needs.
“Rotherham needs to be ready for whatever the future economy brings and today’s students are at the forefront of making sure the borough is ready to take on those employment opportunities when they arise.”
The careers events are coming to Barnsley Town Centre on Tuesday 10 July, Meadowhall Shopping Centre on Friday 13 July and Doncaster Frenchgate Shopping Centre on Wednesday 18 July.
