Festival of Technical Education
Greater Manchester Mayor Andy Burnham has launched ambitious plans to make Greater Manchester the first integrated technical education, skills and work city-region.
In support of this ambition, GMColleges is hosting its first Festival of Technical Education to showcase the technical education routes and pathways available for students in the city region. Working with schools across Greater Manchester, colleges are opening their doors to showcase the fantastic facilities, great courses and amazing career opportunities they have to offer.
With a range of taster days in partnership with local schools, open evenings and award ceremonies to unique student challenges, the GMColleges Festival of Technical Education offers a window into the exciting courses available for students including apprenticeships, T Levels and Higher Technical Qualifications
Students will benefit from an opportunity to hear from leading experts across a range of technical courses and get to ‘have a go’ at new activities that will highlight the career opportunities technical education has to offer.
