Young people who are still confused about their future are being reminded that it is still not too late to further their education or to train for a trade.
Hundreds of city residents are now starting college courses for the first time.
But Stoke on Trent College now has limited places available on a selection of new courses starting in October, ensuring that young people can start a course without missing out on crucial course work.
Principal, Sarah Robinson, said: “We know that many young people who left school in early summer will still not have planned their paths through to future careers.
“Making the right choices can be tough, we are offering October starts to give those who may have chosen an option which they are unsure about or have simply left the decision to the last minute, a way forward.”
Courses starting in October cover a wide range of topics and offer applicants the chance to train for specific jobs.
For example, there is a national shortage of qualified gas fitters and Stoke-on-Trent College is able to offer a course which could ultimately lead to a career which has a good average salary of £27,000 a year.
Alternatively, NEW courses are on offer in the travel services sector for people hoping to go work as a Resort Rep, Holiday Rep or even to work as airline cabin crew. Other new courses include Youth Work Practice, for anyone considering a career in the Youth Service.
All courses will start on the week beginning 10 October, 2011.
