A PIONEERING online open event held by Coventry College attracted hundreds of prospective students on the first day.
The college’s annual open event, which was moved online due to Covid-19, attracted over 500 students on the first day with over 80 live chat conversations taking place with prospective learners.
Former students shared their memories of attending Coventry College, while staff spoke about the courses on offer and potential future careers available.
Debi Donnarumma, Interim Principal and Deputy CEO at Coventry College, said the feedback had been positive.
She said: “The response has been incredible and highlights the hunger for learning is undiminished despite Covid-19.
“It is vital we equip our students with the skills which businesses require particularly as we enter the re-set of our economy and the courses we offer across the board will help them towards their chosen career path.
“We have put together an introduction to life at Coventry College and a video which showcases our resources.
“There is also an opportunity to visit specific subject areas, apply for a place and chat live to staff to get more information about courses.
“The online open event will remain on our website for the next few weeks so there’s no need to worry if you weren’t able to join us for the first day.
“There is still plenty of time to apply to start one of our courses in September and we are here to offer advice and make the application process as straightforward as possible because we know this is an uncertain time.”
