Weekend event to show college at its very best

Have your say

ROTHERHAM College of Arts and Technology is to open its doors to youngsters on Saturday.

The weekend opening is to help make it more convenient for potential students and their families to have a look around and make decisions about their further education and future career.

Rother Valley Campus, Doe Quarry Lane, Dinnington, is open from 10am until 2pm, so young people can see the new facilities, meet tutors and support staff, view interactive demonstrations, get help with applications and discuss career opportunities.

Visitors will see the Mining Meadows Farm, with both farm and exotic animals, meet the meerkats and Luna the cow, and see the college campus facilities.

These include vehicle workshops, the mock air cabin and check-in desk, media, animation and games suites and construction workshops.

At the event, visitors will have the opportunity to discuss career opportunities, take part in taster sessions and listen to student success stories.

On the day there will be plant sales and students will be serving teas, coffees and cakes.
