People who are considering going into further and higher education next September can now get their hands on East Riding College's full-time and higher education course guides.
The full-time course guide features more than 70 courses in art, design and media; business and administration; construction; early years and health and social care; foundation programmes; hair and beauty; hospitality and catering; information technology; motor vehicle and engineering; music; public services; sport and recreation; and travel and tourism.
It also features information on life at the College, facilities, the new campus in Bridlington, open events and how to apply for courses. And there is information on how to choose the right course and how prospective students can talk to the College's award-winning guidance officers.
The higher education course guide gives details of the 11 higher education courses the College offers in digital media; business management; early childhood policy and practice; education; health and social care; information technology; and sports, exercise and health science. There is also a section on Access to Higher Education courses, which enable people who have been out of education for a while to get the experience and points they need to get into college or university.
College Principal Derek Branton said: "Now is the time when year 11 pupils start thinking about further education and when sixth formers and adults are planning their move into higher education.
"Our new course guides are bright and easy-to-read, and give you all the information you need to make decisions on your next step in education.
"If you'd like to know more before you choose a course, come to one of our open events at our Beverley and Bridlington campuses or phone to speak to a guidance officer."
Course guides can be downloaded from www.eastridingcollege.ac.uk, where it is also possible to order hard copies post and find out about forthcoming open events. Alternatively, to request a hard copy by post or to speak to a guidance officer, call 0845 120 0037.
