From dog grooming to floristry: open day moves online

Published at 11:38am 9th June 2020.

Duchy College Rosewarne is hosting a virtual open day for all potential students.

It offers training in agriculture, animal management, dog grooming, floristry, horticulture, vet nursing, wildlife conservation and prestigious Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) courses.

Hosted online, the open day will help prospective learners and their families find out more about the range of apprenticeships, full-time and part-time courses on Tuesday, June 16, from 4pm to 7.30pm.

Course tutors will be sharing information about their courses and the support students can expect to receive.

On the evening a live chat function will be available where individuals will be able to engage in one-to-one chats with the different teams.

Head of Campus Carol Knight said there are usually several face-to-face events to show the public and budding future students the beautiful campus and courses at this time of year.

“Because we can’t do this at the moment, we are now delighted to be able to offer the virtual open event to get an insight into what our learners experience,” she said.

“Please join us online to find out about all the exciting opportunities we have at Rosewarne for September, whether you are a school leaver, mature student, want a change in direction or start a new hobby, we can offer you advice in the areas you are interested in to help you achieve your dream career or personal goals.”

The rural college, which has been providing training for 27 years in West Cornwall, boasts 100 acres of land for future and existing students to explore and learn on.

With classrooms in the countryside as well as in purpose built buildings, the courses are all about looking after the environment and its inhabitants, very much a focus in today’s society.

New developments at the campus include upgrades to the student space, The Nest, which is where all students can go between their studies for some deserved downtime.

Furnished with table football, pool tables, chill-out areas and video games consoles, it is a place for students to be themselves, relax and have fun with their friends.

"There is a commitment to investing in fantastic facilities for learners so they can gain the industry-relevant qualifications they need to embark on a successful career or move onto university-level study if they wish," said Carol.
