Open Events

The best way to see if WorkStart at Orchard Hill College is right for you is to attend one of our Open Events that are run throughout the year. You can meet the teams, have a look at the college facilities and ask any question you may have.

In the interests of safety all Open Events in the Autumn and Spring term will be virtual. These offer a flexible, hassle-free way to view the college. These will include an overview of the college, the curriculum and the application process. You will also have the opportunity to ask questions and speak to someone from the Curriculum or Assessments and Placements.

The next virtual open event is:

Friday 26th February 2021 between 11.30am – 12.30pm

To book your place or find out more information, please contact When booking a place, we will send you the log in information to access our Zoom event.

Outcomes for learners are outstanding, teaching, learning and assessment are excellent and the extremely diverse programmes that meet learners’ individual needs, interests and aspirations, prepare them very well for life after College.
