Parents and Careers Advisers Evening to be held at Motherwell Campus


Parents and Careers Advisers have the opportunity to explore more than 800 courses in 90 minutes at an open evening at New College Lanarkshire.

The event will take place at our Motherwell Campus on Thursday, October 27 from 5pm to help enlighten anyone giving advice to teenagers and school-leavers.

The Parents and Careers Advisers Evening is designed to be an informal yet informative introduction to the wide variety of courses and learning opportunities at our campuses in Coatbridge, Cumbernauld, Broadwood, Hamilton, Kirkintilloch and Motherwell.

The event will begin with an introduction from Heather Urquhart, Vice Principal of Curriculum.

Each of our six faculties will then give a seven-minute speed presentation on their subject areas and courses.

Study areas include everything from accounting, automotive or animal care, through construction, CAD, childcare and cookery, to sport, sound production and welding.

Guests will have the opportunity to ask questions, use iPads to try out the Career Finder tool on our website, and find out more about the numerous articulation routes to university.

Heather Urquhart, Vice Principal of Curriculum, said: “We understand that it can be an overwhelming prospect for any parent or teacher trying to offer advice on which route to take after school when faced with a wealth of options.

“Our Parents and Careers Advisers Evening aims to help everyone responsible for advising school leavers to make informed choices by showcasing our range of courses in a fun yet helpful way.

“We are proud to offer more than 800 courses ranging from apprenticeships to degrees, alongside flexible study patterns that extend from distance learning to full-time.

“We look forward to welcoming everyone to our Motherwell Campus in what we hope will be the first step towards discovering a ‘Skillset for life’ for our next generation of learners.”
