So if you are, or anyone who knows you is, thinking about what to do next why not visit them, between 4-7pm on Thursday 9 February? It will all become clearer.
Whether it’s a career as a music maestro, a stylist to the stars, a high-flying sports coach or an inspiring teacher – Kensington and Chelsea College can help make it happen.
Guests will have the opportunity to talk directly to tutors, many of whom still work professionally in the industries they teach about and have a large network of contacts that students can tap into.
Proudly, the College is rated ‘Good’ by Ofsted and offers more than 900 courses that can lead to real jobs and a secure future - which is a pleasant thought in these times.
