Truro and Penwith College enjoys a jam-packed start to Open Events

With post-16 decisions just around the corner, Truro and Penwith College have started their Open Events with an Information Evening at Trelawney Garden Centre in Wadebridge.

The evening offered a chance for students based in north, mid and east Cornwall to come and see what Truro College is all about. Students were given a presentation by Cheryl Mewton, Director of Studies at Truro College, before being able to talk and discuss their options with a range of lecturers from different subject areas.

Brand new Callywith College also attended the event, giving the students even more information on the options that are awaiting them.

With the success of the first event behind them, Truro and Penwith College looks forward to their upcoming Open Events, which offer students the chance to take a look around the College and get a feel of where they could be studying.

The College’s open days, which will be based at both Truro and Penwith campuses, provide in-depth looks at many aspects of College life. Both Open Days will provide visitors with the opportunity to stroll around campus, talk to staff and take part in a variety of tours and talks. Activities will also be on offer throughout the day to give visitors a chance to learn more about courses while doing something a little different.

At Truro College’s Open Day on Saturday 4 November, visitors will be able to try their hand at archery, experience virtual reality and satisfy that nostalgic dream of being on Robot Wars. Visitors will also be able to head into Truro College’s HE to try their pop-up photobooth, silversmithing and Tudor cookery.

Visitors to Penwith on Saturday 25 November on the other hand will be able to have a go at 3D modelling in computer games design, try out some ingenious disability aids in Health & Social Care, or take on the pit stop challenge in the motor vehicle workshop.
