Havering College of Further and Higher Education will be holding an open day at its Ardleigh Green campus on Saturday, October 14.

It will be an opportunity for prospective students to take a look at the award winning college, including tours of the classrooms, facilities and equipment, and the chance to meet teaching staff.

The college provides further education for students aged 14 or over.

Ardleigh Green, the largest campus, runs full time and part time courses in English, maths and sciences, as well as hair and beauty, and creative arts.

Visitors can also find out about vacancies for apprenticeships.

According to events and promotions officer Summer Mason, the college also provides education for 14 to 16-year-olds “struggling” at their secondary schools.

For these students, the college creates a “supportive environment” where they “can lead the way” themselves, including through specialist and vocational pathways.

There will be current students available to chat on the day.

In 2016, Havering College received STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) Assured Status.

The open event is from 10am-4pm.
