Peter Nangle, vice principal of curriculum at Northumberland College, said: “This is the first in a series of open events running throughout the year at our campuses.

“Each event is held the first Tuesday of every month and students, employers, employees and those considering education can discuss options available, organise a tour of facilities including our equine, horticulture, veterinary and animal management practices at Kirkley Hall as well as our learning, commercial and multimillion pound STEM centre at Ashington.

“No appointment is necessary and student advisors, as well as members of our business engagement team, will be on hand to offer advice. Hundreds of programmes are available including over 30 higher education courses plus apprenticeships, many of which can be tailored to specific employer needs.”

Northumberland College Help Hub advisors will be available to discuss all possible options and in addition to course advice, the team can provide health, wellbeing and welfare support to ensure students have the help they need.
