All four of the college’s centres will be open for the public to drop in on Wednesday, May 9 from 10am to 7pm.

The main centre is situated at Adams Drive, Spittal, the construction centre is at Ramparts Business Park and the Simply Students hair and beauty salons are situated in Berwick town centre.

Courses are available in subjects including beauty therapy, business and administration, construction, early years, foundation learning, hairdressing, health and social care, hospitality and catering, IT, travel and tourism.

Tutors will be available at the centres to talk about the full and part-time courses and apprenticeships beginning in Berwick in September and those who find the right course for them will be able to apply straight away.
