Derby, United Kingdom, February 17, 2011 --(PR.com
)-- Derby College is launching a series of Spring short courses – aimed at young people aged between 16 and 18 who are currently not in education or employment.
The courses, ranging from catering to construction and gardening to beauty will be held at the College’s sites in Derby, Ilkeston or Heanor in March – opening doors to a full time course, apprenticeship or a job.
Information evenings about the options available will be held on Monday February 28 between 4pm and 7pm at Field Road, Ilkeston; and on Tuesday March 1, between 4pm and 7pm at The Roundhouse, Pride Park, Derby.
Derby College Principal David Croll explained: “Figures show that there are nearly 2000 young people in the city and county aged between 16 and 18 who are currently not in any form of education, training or employment.
“The short courses are ideally suited for young people who now realise that they need further qualifications to get a job and opens doors to them either coming back to College full time, gaining an apprenticeship or taking their first step on a career ladder.”
