At the end of 2022, Kirklees College hosted its first open days of the academic year and welcomed record numbers of guests. Prospective students of all ages, parents and friends visited the college’s Huddersfield and Dewsbury centres to get a feel for the further education college.

Staff from all departments were there to guide guests around the college and showcase their specialist facilities across the college’s seven sites. From hair and beauty salons and animal grooming facilities to a motor vehicle workshop and forensics lab, prospective students were able to see all the college has to offer.

As a uniquely vocational college, Kirklees College specialises in professional qualifications that prepare students aged 16 and upwards for work and further study. Our Open Days also allow people to ask tutors about the different qualifications we offer, including T Levels, BTECs, Apprenticeships, English Speaking for Other Languages (ESOL), Foundation Learning and Higher Education.

Helen Rose, director of external relations said: “Our open days have been a huge success and offered prospective students the very important opportunity to get a feel for the college. We enjoyed seeing lots of faces at our open days and look forward to welcoming guests across our centres at our next open days in January.”

We are excited for our next round of open days in January, on Saturday 21 (Huddersfield Centres) and Wednesday 25 (Dewsbury Centres). To book your space and find out more information, visit
