East Durham College New Look Houghall Campus 2016

College Ready For First Open Evening At Revamped Campus

East Durham College’s Houghall campus is ready to meet a host of Year 11 students and their parents for the first time since its £12million redevelopment.

The college will be holding a Year 11 open evening at the Durham-based campus on Wednesday 12th October between 5pm and 7pm.

The evening will give Year 11 students and parents, from across the region, the chance to take a look round the fantastic new facilities, and meet with teaching staff from all the land-based courses available at the campus.

Visitors will have the opportunity to talk to staff members from course areas such as; Animal Care, Agriculture, Arboriculture, Equine, Countryside Management, Veterinary Nursing, Floristry and Horticulture.

There will also be the opportunity to take a look around the updated main campus building, new animal care centre and new indoor equine arena and stables.

Principal Suzanne Duncan said: “This is a great opportunity to come and find out more about our fantastic course offering here at the college, directly from the staff members that would be teaching you if you chose to join a course with us next September.

“The evening will give parents the chance to come along and help their children explore all of the options available to them, before they make that important decision about their next step, after GCSEs.

“Our teaching and student services staff can help provide invaluable information, advice and guidance to put potential students on the right training path to lead to their career of choice.”
