Ilkeston Event Showcases Course and Career Options

Ilkeston EventDerby College is opening its doors to the public for an information morning on Saturday April 23 between 10am and 12 noon.

As well as a wide range of demonstrations, there will be the opportunity to try out various vocations from bricklaying to hairdressing and the chance to speak to the tutors about the full and part time courses available at the £10m purpose-built campus in Pimlico.

Head of Ilkeston Campus Helen Jefferson said: “The curriculum offer at Ilkeston is very vocational focused from Engineering and Construction to Hair and Beauty and Health and Social Care – ensuring that young people and adults alike have the employability skills they need to get a job and progress their careers.

“The multi-million pound investment in new facilities enables learners of all ages to realise their full potential and gain the valuable work and life skills that are so vital in these demanding economic times, both for themselves as individuals and for local employers.

“The information morning is an excellent opportunity for people to come and see the facilities for themselves, try their hand at some of the skills on offer and find out more about the study programmes available for young people and adults in the Erewash area.”
