A NEW college prospectus can help young people plan their futures.

East Durham College has unveiled a new 208-page prospectus detailing all the full-time courses available.

The brochure has courses on offer that start from September 2013 and there are two other prospectuses.

They cover courses available at the Houghall Campus and another showcases what is on offer at the college’s new sixth form ED6, and the A-level subjects students can take.

The college has traditionally had the guide ready in October, but as Year 11 pupils are deciding earlier and earlier on what they want to do when they leave school the college took delivery of it in August.

Thousands of copies of the new prospectuses are being distributed to Year 11 pupils, schools and career centres across the North East.

Joanne Henderson, vocational co-ordinator at Dene Community School in Peterlee, said: “The prospectus is a fantastic way for students to access information on the wide variety of quality provision at the college.

“We work very closely with the college to help make sure our pupils make the right choice for them about the course to study and their future.”

Director of marketing Alistair Cummins-MacLeod added: “We conducted extensive research with our students and local Y10/Y11 pupils to find out what design styles appealed to them.

“These important findings helped to formulate the brief we gave to the creative agencies and has resulted in some very impactful creative.”

Anyone requiring a copy of the prospectus should call student services on 518 8222.

Course information is also available on the college website by visiting www.eastdurham.ac.uk and www.ed6.ac.uk.
