More Courses on Offer for Higher Ed Students; STOCKTON Riverside College Has Launched a New Higher Education (HE) Prospectus for September Featuring Two New Courses and Is Holding a Special Information Event for Prospective Students


The college's HE Information Evening is when prospective students can go along and find out more about the courses they are interested in and speak to tutors, careers advisers and staff about funding for courses and gain advice on completing application forms. Sue Hannan, employment, learning and skills manager at Tees Valley Unlimited, the local enterprise partnership, will be at the open event, talking to prospective students about higher level skills and job prospects in the area.

Sue said: "There are benefits of having higher level skills in terms of careers. We know that some sectors are already looking, or will be in the future, for people with skills, such as leadership and management, engineering and advanced manufacturing, or ICT, so the opportunities available to people with higher level skills are, we believe, increased" SRC's higher education courses are provided in partnership with Teesside University. The courses have strong links with employers from the region, ensuring students gain skills and experience relevant to the sectors they aim to work within.

Helen Severs, from the university's information and advice team will be on hand at SRC's information event to talk to students about funding for courses.

She will be talking about various funding options students can access, from student loans to bursaries and other money. Prospective students don't need to pay their course fees up front, and loans for courses starting in September don't need to start to be repaid until 2016 at the earliest and even then, only if they are earning more than pounds 21,000. SRC has a learner support fund which may be able to help students with fees, essential books, equipment, travel and childcare. Those wanting to study for some teaching qualifications can get a bursary to cover the whole of their course fees and other professional qualifications are also eligible for funding.
