Open Days and Events

St Helens College Virtual Open Event - Wednesday 25th November 2020

We have added some more live talks to our Virtual Event this time around so even if your students visited our first event in October, it will still be useful for them to register and visit again. The live sessions taking place this time include a talk from our Deputy Principal, insight from past students currently working in Hospitality/Health & Social Care settings and employers that we work with too.
