College takes major open event online to ensure safety of staff and prospective students
COLEG CAMBRIA is to host a two-week virtual showcase of the many courses and qualifications it has on offer.
Due to the Coronavirus pandemic, there will be no open days at its sites in Deeside, Wrexham, Northop or Llysfasi.
So the college took the decision to invite prospective students to find out more from the comfort of their homes.
Beginning on Monday (November 9) and running until Friday November 20, those attending the online programme will receive information and advice on the wide range of A Level and BTEC subjects available, as well as apprenticeships, degrees, part-time courses and adult learning provision.
There will also be welcome videos from Principal Sue Price and Dean of Access and HE (Higher Education) Jackie Doodson and a 3D tour of the institution’s incredible facilities, featuring the £14.6m Deeside Sixth Form Centre and newly-revamped £20m extension to Yale in Wrexham.
Call backs are available from tutors and student support services will be on hand to take questions; you can also apply to start a course from next September.
“This has been such a challenging year for everyone,” said Mrs Price.
“Our open days are among the highlights in the calendar and give us a platform to demonstrate the very best of Coleg Cambria, so it’s disappointing we won’t be able to do that in person.
“Because we don’t want people to miss out, we put together an interactive online series of tours, talks, and there will be plenty of information available for anyone interested in joining us from 2021 onwards.”
She added: “We hope to see a good response and will continue to hold lectures and events online or with social distancing measures in place until the time is right – the safety of our students, staff and visitors is our top priority.”
