Open Day at the Warwickshire College
On Saturday 5th February 2005 from 10am-1pm, Warwickshire College’s Henley Centre will be holding an Open Day aimed at young people interested in full-time further study or training and also those intending to study at higher education level.
The Henley-in-Arden Centre houses Warwickshire College’s sports courses, as well as hair, beauty, holistic therapy and textiles courses. These are run on a full-time basis for students aged 16-19 and at Higher Education level for students aged 19 upwards.
In September, the Henley-in-Arden Centre launched a brand new Foundation Degree in Spa Management, one of only two places to offer this qualification in the country. Students on this course will spend some of their study time in the Grade II building, which is currently being converted into a commercial day spa. From February 2005, the spa will open to the public on non training days for a range of luxurious spa treatments performed by fully qualified staff.
Centre Manager Hilary Wright said, “I would like to extend an invitation to the Henley community to visit the Henley-in-Arden Centre and take a look around. Why not visit our fully equipped gym and hair and beauty salon – both are open to the public at competitive prices. Visitors will also be able to find out about the range of spa treatments on offer from February.”
The Centre’s facilities include a state-of-the-art lecture theatre for teaching, conference and community hall for indoor activities, a fitness training suite and a fully equipped gym.
Information on Education Maintenance Allowances (EMAs), launched in Warwickshire in September 2004, will also be on offer at the Open Day. This new Government initiative makes grants of up to £30 per week available to many young people on further education courses, depending on their household income.
Visitors are also encouraged to take the opportunity to visit one or more College Centres. The Leamington and Rugby Centres will be providing information on the majority of courses offered by Warwickshire College and also on the International Baccalaureate Diploma, offered at both Centres. For land based courses, visitors should go to the College’s Moreton Morrell Centre and for Leamington-based engineering, motor vehicle and accounting courses, visitors should go to the Trident Technology and Business Centre, based in Whitnash. Engineering courses are also offered at the college’s Rugby Centre.
