The events, which are part of College Development Network’s nationwide ‘Big College Open Week’, will also offer an opportunity to explore the campuses, including classrooms, labs and industry-standard workshops. They take place at Dunfermline (Tuesday, March 26); Glenrothes (Wednesday 27th) and Kiirkcaldy (Thursday 28th).

Dorothee Leslie, vice principal, said: “The open days offer a unique opportunity for prospective students to explore our facilities, experience taster sessions and learn more about the wide array of courses on offer. From full-time to part-time, work-based learning to degree-level progression, we aim to provide transformative educational opportunities which provide the pathways, experiences, and qualifications that lead straight into jobs and careers.

“Whether you are leaving school this coming summer, looking for further qualifications to change career or enhance employment opportunities, we urge you to join us at one of the events this month and discover the endless possibilities at Fife College."

Marie Hendry, College Development Network chief executive, added: “We are really excited for this year’s Big College Open Week. It’s all part of the ‘Choose College’ campaign and aims to highlight the incredible opportunities colleges offer. The week will showcase the support and expertise that has helped countless pupils, school leavers, career changers, career developers, employers, graduates and apprentices to take the next steps in their journey.

“We want to get the message out to parents, grandparents, guardians, teachers, mature students and school pupils that college is so much more than a course – it offers pathways, experiences and qualifications that lead to real careers and future success.”
