EDINBURGH COLLEGE APPLICATIONS AND OPEN DAYS

Applications for Full Time courses at Edinburgh College are now open!  

You can apply online but please be aware that when a course is full, it will close so it is really important you get your application in as soon as possible!  If you need help with this you can ask your guidance teacher or to see a Careers Advisor.  If you are interested in starting a course at Edinburgh College in 2020 you can come along to the campus open days.

At an open day you can:

VALENTINE’S DRESS DOWN DAY

On Friday 7 February pupils and staff are invited to wear an outfit that links to Valentine’s day or (for the less creative!) wear something red or pink.  At break time there will be Valentine treats on offer in the link corridor for those who have participated in the theme.  Anyone who wishes to participate and dress down in pink/red/valentine theme are requested to contribute £1.  This will be collected during registration.  A donation will also be made to our Malawi Partnership.

YOUNG CARERS’ DAY

TODAY is National Young Carers’ Day. On this day, and all that week, we will be raising awareness of the work that Young Carers do to support others in their families. We have a number of Young Carers in the school and all this week we will be highlighting some of the challenges that young people face when caring for someone else.
