DON’T worry. If your results have left you confused or uncertain about which career option to choose, or if you’re not even sure which options are open to you, there is help at hand. Glasgow Kelvin College still has a limited number of places available on full-time courses starting later this month.
Glasgow Kelvin College will be holding an Open Day at its Springburn Campus, 123 Flemington Street G21 4TD between 10am and 3pm on Wednesday 15th August, 2018 where you can drop in and discuss your options.
The College has four campuses - in Easterhouse, East End, Maryhill and Springburn - and offers a wide range of courses in many different subject areas. All full-time programmes at Glasgow Kelvin lead on to further study or employment.
The College is keen also to encourage applicants to make ‘non-traditional’ choices in their learning journey. There are excellent career opportunities for females in the science, engineering and technology areas; while there are equally good prospects for men entering into the childcare, caring, nursing and hairdressing professions.
Not all courses require you to have formal qualifications beforehand and the College offers programmes from entry level to advanced level, ensuring access and providing a stimulating learner journey to all levels of ability.
Most courses carry a work-experience or employability element which ensures that Kelvin students have industry-relevant skills – vocational and personal – to help them access the best careers and achieve more from their working life in a competitive jobs market.
The development of skills in STEM subjects is high on the Scottish Government employment agenda. And the career options open to successful students from these programmes are almost infinite. STEM subjects are used in almost every walk of life today.
Even career areas which may not seem obvious utilise STEM skills. The creative industries, for example, are now utilising many of the new digital technologies with the advent of 3D Printing and Computer Aided Design.
So if you’ve just got your results and have still to decide on a career option, or if your plans have changed, check our courses with places still available here to help you make your decision or come along to the Open Day on 15th August 2018. See you at Springburn Campus!
