Totton College Open Evening

We went into Totton College on Wednesday in an effort to complete the Microsoft Access

module of our ITQ level 2.

Sadly, we didn’t quite finish it but we needed to wait around for an hour for the open evening to start.

Fortunately, there is a Costa selling student priced coffee which kept us busy until the Tutors began filing into the cafeteria and taking their places.

Thanks to the newly released prospectus advertising all manner of exciting courses, we had narrowed it down to a small list that we were interested in:

Computer Programming – This featured as a primary objective during my previous brainstorming session. It uses VB.Net but still should be useful to me.

Web Design – Only a leisure course but interesting, sadly the tutor wasn’t there to talk to.

Forensic Psychology, Clinical Psychology, Criminology – only short leisure courses but sound really interesting and could help me to decide if a career in Psychology is for me.

Hairdressing – One for Tracey, something she has wanted to do for years but due to Southampton City College‘s history with bullying and apathy has put her off studying there.

We spoke to all the relevant tutors in a roundabout way, being shunted between the front desk, and table to table.

Most people seem to have only had one or two courses in mind so we were definitely testing their skills!.

These courses also would be discounted if we are in receipt of certain benefits come the enrolment!.

It’s a shame they did not have any Health & Safety courses available as that is another primary objective discovered during my brainstorming session which would have come in helpful for my employment prospects.

There is always the ever present possibility of online courses too for many of the subjects I am interested in, though costs will vary between free and expensive.

Well, time to go back to Python and see how much I have forgotten!.
