Mid Cheshire College opens its doors to exciting times ahead
A NEW principal and fantastic opportunities will be on show at Mid Cheshire College (MCC) as they welcome students from across the country to their first opening evening of the academic year.
From a fully functional theatre that would sit happily in London’s West End, through to the music recording studios, fully equipped motor vehicle workshops, science labs, beauty salons and a working restaurant, MCC is a real hidden gem.
The college will open its doors from 6pm on Monday, October 7, and invites students and parents alike to see the impressive and life changing facilities on offer for themselves.
Students at MCC have secured places at some of the UK’s most sought after learning institutes including Goldsmith’s University, London College of Fashion and Sir Paul McCartney’s Liverpool Institute of Performing Arts.
The college has also exposed raw talent and has helped to carve some impressive careers including designers for Kate Moss, positions at one of Marco Pierre White’s restaurants and British Airways, as well as football scholarships to the USA.
Principal Richard Hollywood, who took up the position this summer, will be talking at the opening evening.
He said: “At MCC learning comes first, but it is not just about studying for a qualification – it’s about the whole experience.
“We spend a lot of time making sure that when a student leaves us, they are equipped with the best chance to succeed, whether it’s continuing into higher education or gaining employment, that’s the Mid Cheshire commitment.”
Advice will be on hand from students and experienced tutors from a variety of programmes to ensure that each individual has information on a course suited to them.
Not only will there be guidance on which path to choose, there will also be a focus on what the end result will be on completion of a course at MCC, with career aspiration activities taking place.
Highlights of Monday’s open evening will include tours of the specialist workshops available for construction students, as well as interactive demonstrations from beauty students including facials, manicures and innovative techniques from massage and reflexology.
The Moulin Rouge performance from performing arts, acting and dance students is not to be missed, with two performances throughout the night from 6.30pm and 7.30pm in the college’s state-of-the-art 200 seat theatre.
Mr Hollywood added: “We have an exceptional selection of facilities, including the college’s brand new £7.5m centre for creative arts and sports that many students and parents may not be aware of.
“We hope that our open evenings will entice anyone who is seeking to further their education and make them aware of the amazing opportunities that are available at MCC.”
