Outstanding college welcomes prospective students

Potential new students will have the opportunity to find out about the wide range of study programmes and see the facilities on offer at Barnsley College, Barnsley Sixth Form College and Barnsley College Higher Education at an Open Day on Saturday 14 January from 10.00am to 2.00pm.

Visitors to the Open Day will have the opportunity to speak to tutors, attend presentations, find out about the range of support services available and visit the state-of-the-art campuses and facilities.

Rated Outstanding by Ofsted, Barnsley College and Barnsley Sixth Form College offer courses in a variety of subjects including full and part-time vocational programmes, A Levels, T Levels (Technical qualifications), apprenticeships and university-level courses.

Barnsley College’s Director of Student Recruitment, Mel Jenkinson, said: “We know choosing the right college and the right pathway is an important decision for you. Our Open Days are an ideal opportunity to find out what studying with us is like and find out about the wide range of courses we offer.

“Our friendly and knowledgeable staff are here to support you to make the right decision which will allow you to take your first steps towards securing your dream career.”

There’s still time for 16 to 18-year-olds not currently in education, employment or training to apply for this academic year. Through a personalised timetable they could build their skills for the future – whether it’s a mix of art, engineering, digital and fashion; or construction, catering, games design, music, or anything in between.

If you want to join the college but would prefer to study in your own home and around your existing commitments, then the range of online courses may be for you. Visit for more information on the courses starting in January.
