Adult education and university-level open evening

Tuesday 6 March 2018 | 5.30pm - 7:30pm
Derby Road (NG18 5BH)


Whether you’re returning to education, want to take your qualifications higher, or are simply ready to try something new, our adult education and university-level information evening is for you.

This open evening is designed to give those aged 19+ all the information they will need about our courses, from entry-level to university-level, both full-time and part-time, to help them make the right choices to support their career ambitions. This could include a community course, work-based learning, a professional qualification, a full-time course (including GCSEs and A Levels) and even a degree.

University-level study

Did you know we offer university-level courses at college?

With the opening of our new Vision University Centre, we’re offering more university-level courses to more students than ever before – all of which are flexible and can easily be fitted around other commitments. HE programmes on offer include HNCs, HNDs, foundation degrees and full honours degrees.

The new centre provides students with state-of-the-art facilities including modern learning spaces, IT suites, a learning resource centre, a 100-seat lecture theatre and science laboratories. Join us to find out more about Higher Education and our validating universities.

Access to Higher Education

Not quite ready for university? Our Access to HE courses can get you university ready in just one year. Access courses can be studied in a number of subjects including business and law, nursing, science, sport and teaching – and help you to get the skills, qualifications and confidence needed to move on to Higher Education in your chosen area.

Professional qualifications

If you’re looking for specific skills to help you move on in your career, or into something new, we offer a range of professional accredited courses including accounting, marketing, HR and purchase and supply. Some pick and mix options are available for you to select exactly the units you need to enhance your skills.

Community courses

The college offers a number of shorter courses at over 50 venues across Nottinghamshire which run throughout the year. Many of our community learners choose to study on a course with us to make friends, gain new skills, explore their interests further or gain important skills including First Aid. Courses range from photography, to crafts, learning languages, and more and vary in length.

Full-time courses

Our full-time courses begin in September, and provide students with specific skills across a number of vocations. Our courses range from entry-level to Level 3, with a real focus on employability and getting you ready for a career. Subject areas include business, care and education, computer science, construction, creative arts, engineering, hair and beauty, health and care, hospitality and catering, sport and public services and travel and tourism.

We also offer A Levels at the college’s exclusive sixth form centre.

On the night:

Speak to our tutors

Our subject tutors and admissions teams will be available to chat with you about the courses we have on offer, careers they can lead to and answer any questions you may have.

Careers advice

We appreciate that with all the different educational options available, it can be quite overwhelming for those who haven’t got a clear career goal in mind. As a result, our careers team are happy to provide impartial, informative advice and guidance – helping you to make a decision about your next steps.

Support services

You will also be able to access our support services to ask any questions you may have, such as whether you might be eligible for financial support, how to get to college from home and additional learning support.

Apply for your course

If you see something you like you can apply for a course on the night. We have application forms and staff on hand to assist you. Or if you prefer, you can take the information away with you and apply online when you’re ready.

When you arrive

Make your way to the main reception of the university centre where you will be greeted by our friendly staff in red t-shirts who will provide you with an open evening guide and our latest course guide that contains plenty of useful information. The team will be around throughout the night should you need further assistance.
