Duchy College Duchy Stoke Climsland event

Young people and learners from Cornwall and Devon are being urged to explore the wide range of options on their doorstep.


Duchy College Stoke Climsland, which boasts one of the most beautiful rural campuses in the region, will be playing host to prospective students on Saturday 11th March between 10am and 12noon.


Head of College, Rob Dunn, said it was the perfect opportunity for people to explore the site and get an insight into the wonderful careers that are possible with the right course.


“We have students who come to us from all over Devon and Cornwall, and our courses and careers advice events gives everyone the opportunity to meet our expert staff, find out about particular courses, learn about progression routes and discover the wide range of career options,” he explained.


“Courses at Duchy College start at entry-level with progression routes up to degree-level study, there are options to study on full and part-time courses as well as NVQ and Apprenticeship qualifications are available, so this is a great chance to tour the campus and take home lots of valuable information.” 


Although students now have to stay in education until they are 18 it does not necessarily mean at school 6th form, Rob continued.


“They have the choice of a college course or apprenticeship and this event will help them with that decision making process. We are looking forward to welcoming potential students and their families onto our campus.”


While the College is well known for its agricultural and animal management offering thanks to the state-of-the-art working farm onsite, there are also a wealth of fantastic and successful courses in childcare, schools and families, construction plant, equine, food technology, game keeping, land-based engineering, a military academy, outdoor adventure, public services, sport and vocational and work-related studies, not to mention university courses.


Advisors will be on hand to offer a range of information on all aspects of college life including the range of courses, study programme, transport, accommodation and learning support.


Boasting award-winning faculties, state-of-the-art facilities and industry-focused training; the College is able to give students all the experience and skills necessary for their future career.
