Description

What to expect

Whether you’re returning to education, want to take your qualifications higher, or simply ready to try something new, our adult education and university-level open evening is for you.

This open evening is designed to give those aged 19+ all the information they will need about our courses, from entry-level to university-level, both full-time and part-time, to help them make the right choices to support their career ambitions. This could include a community course, work-based learning, a professional qualification, a full-time course (including GCSEs and A Levels) and even a degree.

  • Meet our tutors – They’re passionate about the subjects they teach and are happy to answer your questions!
  • Find your feet – Open evenings are a great chance to get a first glimpse at life at college – particularly good if you’ve been out of education for a while.
  • Apply on the night – Our friendly staff are on-hand to help you fill out an application form and answer questions you may have about finance etc.
  • Helps you to make a decision – Undecided about what you’d like to do next? Our careers team are usually available to speak to on the night, as well as tutors and/or current students.
  • Share the experience – Bring along family and friends so they too can get an idea of what life is like at West Notts!


University-level Courses

Delivered by The Guardian’s first university of the year, Nottingham Trent University (NTU), you can study a range of university-level courses at our Vision University Centre in Mansfield. NTU have launched a range of foundation degree courses, which you can study in Mansfield, with all courses having the option to top-up to full degree level. This collaboration is a ground-breaking route to an NTU education, which brings you teaching excellence and a passion for success for all students.

You can study courses in business, computing, criminal justice, education, health and social care, sport and exercise science, working with children, young people and families.

The centre provides students with state-of-the-art facilities including modern learning spaces, IT suites, a learning resource centre, a 100-seat lecture theatre and science laboratories.

NTU will join us at the open day so you can find out more about the Higher Education courses on offer from September 2020.

Access to University Courses

Not quite ready for university? Our Access to University courses can get you university ready in just one year. Access to University courses can be studied in a number of subjects including business and law, nursing, science, sport and teaching – and help you to get the skills, qualifications and confidence needed to move on to Higher Education in your chosen area.

Professional Qualifications

If you’re looking for specific skills to help you move on in your career, or into something new, we offer a range of professional accredited courses including accounting, HR and purchase and supply. Some pick and mix options are available for you to select exactly the units you need to enhance your skills.

Community Courses

The college offers a number of short courses at over 50 venues across Nottinghamshire which run throughout the year. Many of our community learners choose to study on a course with us to make friends, gain new skills, explore their interests further or gain important skills including First Aid. Courses range from photography, to crafts, learning languages, and more and vary in length.

Full-time Courses

Our full-time courses begin in September, and provide students with specific skills across a number of vocations. Our courses range from entry-level to Level 3, with a real focus on employability and getting you ready for a career. Subject areas include business, care and education, computer science, construction, creative arts, engineering, hair and beauty, health and care, hospitality and catering, science, sport and uniformed public services and travel and tourism.

We also offer A Levels at the college’s exclusive sixth form centre.
