An open event to inform students about courses at The College in Braintree will take place tonight.

The College, a Colchester Institute campus in Church Lane, offers full-time and part-time course, including A-Level alternatives such as BTECs and NVQs as well as apprenticeships.

New courses starting in September include a level 3 BTEC in Applied Science, level 1 and 2 Plumbing Studies and the access to higher education diploma.

As well as the opportunity to speak to subject tutors and careers advisers, there will be advice available on student services and finance.
