KCC Open Day – 9 Feb 2012

Open Day February 2012

Thinking about what to do next? Whether it’s a career as a music maestro, a stylist to the stars, a high-flying sports coach or an inspiring teacher – Kensington and Chelsea College can help make it happen.

On Thursday February 9 the college is throwing its doors open and inviting potential students to a special Open Day at its brand new Chelsea Centre, Hortensia Road, SW10 0QS. The event takes place 4-7pm.

Guests will have the opportunity to talk directly to tutors, many of whom still work professionally in the industries they teach about and have a large network of contacts that students can utilise. The college’s Hair and Beauty Department will also be offering guests free Indian Head massages and hair plaiting services during the event.

The Ofsted rated ‘Good’ college offers more than 900 courses that can lead to real jobs and a secure future.

It also offers apprenticeships in many subject areas, which give students the opportunity to work towards a qualification whilst being paid a real salary.

University equivalent Higher Education courses are also available at the college, with 2012/13 fees for these courses capped at £5285 per year, considerably cheaper than many university fees. In addition, nearly all students will be eligible to fund this fee from the new subsidised loan scheme.
