With over 300 courses to choose from at the College of Haringey, Enfield and North East London, and most free for unemployed adults, we are urging people not to miss out on enrolment this September. All courses are free for young people, and they may also be eligible for Bursaries, which replace EMA grants, worth up to Â£30 a week.
Enrolment runs until 22 September but places are filling up fast so those interested in getting skilled need to visit either the College’s Tottenham or Enfield centre as soon as possible and choose from a range of subjects, including Construction, ICT, Creative and Media and Business.
Chris Harmsworth (18) visited the College’s Enfield Centre last week and enrolled on a Bricklaying course with the School of Construction. He said: “There’s plenty of work in Bricklaying and it’s a craft I really plan to be one of the best in, so learning the skills at college is the best way for me to succeed.”
Zhaoli Wen also enrolled on the second year of his Business BTEC Level 3. Zhaoli is one of the ten students who has been selected on the College’s Career Academy which enables him to have a top industry mentor and an internship in the summer with a leading company. As well as being a Student Ambassador, Student Mentor and Class Representative, Zhaoli is also a volunteer working to help the College during Enrolment. He said: “I want to work in retail marketing when I’m qualified for a large supermarket chain.”
Over at the College’s Tottenham Centre, 27 year old Tara Kleanthous waited patiently to enrol on the Performing Arts BTEC Level 3 Extended Diploma. She said: “I’ve been working in the Entertainment Industry as a dancer since I was five. I’ve had some acting roles, but now I really want to get an acting qualification under my belt, so that I can take the next step and work in theatre.”
And Ashley-Ann Spencer (19) would like to enrol on the College’s Science BTEC Diploma Level 3. She said: “I love Science and finding out how things work. I particularly like Chemistry and I want to go to university and study Food Science.”
Jane O’Neill, Vice Principal for Curriculum and Learner Experience, said: “This time of year is always exciting for the College as we welcome new students and start a new academic year.
“It’s good to see everyone walking through the doors, but I encourage others to come to College and see what we have to offer and how. There’s financial help for young people and adults so everyone should take advantage of all that a great education at the College has to offer, now.”
Enrolment runs at the College’s Enfield and Tottenham centres Monday to Saturday at various times until 22 September.
