College open days 2019-20

college foyer

In Year 11 you’ll need to make decisions about what to do next. Your options might include staying on in your school’s sixth form, choosing a different sixth form, going to college or choosing an apprenticeship.

Whatever your options it can seem quite daunting but the more informed you are, the more likely you are to make the right choice for you.

Visiting sixth forms and colleges before you make your decision can help you work out your next steps. Remember that talking to a careers adviser or teacher in school can also help you plan your future.

These are some of the open days and evenings for 2019-20 for colleges accessible from the Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire area.

There will be lots of sixth form open days across the year too – please check individually with each school for upcoming dates.

Please note, dates may change so please check with the college before your visit.
