Hundreds flock to College Open Day
Hundreds of career focused and aspirational young people attended the Tottenham Centre Open Day at The College of Haringey, Enfield and North East London on Wednesday 24 November to get advice and apply for a course for Jan 2011 and September 2011 entry.
School students and adults came along to the evening event where they had the opportunity to attend careers workshops, talk to course tutors, tour the centre and get the taste for College life.
Fifteen year old Lily Stray from Forest Pathway College in Walthamstow, came long to the open day to find out more about creative studies. She said: “I heard about the open day through my school so asked a few of my friends to come along. It’s been really good, everyone is really friendly and the Art and Media workshop gave me a good idea of what I’ll be doing. I’m not sure exactly what course I will choose, maybe fashion, but I will definitely be applying for September.”
Visitors had the opportunity to try out a number of activities, such as presenting in front of a blue screen and being transported to the Grand Canyon or a tropical beach (pictured), or carrying out experiments in the science laboratory.
In addition, Keisha Rodney, who studying Music Technology BTEC Diploma Level 3, entertained visitors by performing songs she had produced as part of her course.
Jane O’Neill, Vice Principal, said: “This open day offered visitors the chance to try out workshops and to get a real taste for our courses. Visitors were also able to apply and beat the rush in September.”
Further open days will be held on 2 February and 30 March at our Enfield Centre and 26 January and 16 March at our Tottenham Centre. For further information visit www.conel.ac.uk/opendays
