Open Event season is about to begin and for new Year 11s and their parents it can be daunting task. Preston College are here to help with our guide ‘How to get the most out of college open events.” This is the first in a series of articles that will be published to help school leavers and their parents navigate the transition from High School to College.
This article is brought to you by Dave Elliott, who has been working in the Education sector for over twenty years. During that time he has visited 100s of schools in the Lancashire region and helped thousands of students take their next steps after school providing support and careers advice and guidance. Dave is currently undertaking a Level 6 in Information Advice and Guidance to further his knowledge and skills in the sector. On a day to day basis Dave is working at Preston College as the Recruitment and Progression Manager for 14-19 year olds organising the College events such as Open Days, Tasters and Welcome Evenings. When he’s not on campus he will be visiting schools in the local area, delivering presentations, attending careers fairs and hosting workshops.
