Scotland’s colleges come together to offer online information event


South Lanarkshire College are supporting the first ever Choose College Virtual Showcase, taking place online on Wednesday 26 May.

The free exhibition and information event will see colleges from all over Scotland come together on one virtual platform to showcase their courses and share information about college life.

Organised by the CDN Marketing and Communications Network, the Choose College Virtual Showcase has been designed to inspire and engage prospective students, as well as anyone who is interested in finding out more about studying at a college in Scotland.

The Virtual Showcase also provides an excellent opportunity for parents, carers, teachers, and careers advisers to ask as many questions as they like about life at college – from the comfort of their own homes. 

Designed to inspire and engage, the event will provide prospective students with an opportunity to hear from keynote speakers, visit college exhibition stands to learn more about courses, levels of study, progression routes, careers, apprenticeships and college life including wellbeing and services to assist their learning. .

The Choose College Virtual Showcase will run twice on Wednesday 26 May, between 3-5pm and 7-9pm, giving attendees the flexibility to choose their preferred session slot, or even attend both!

The event follows on from the recent #ChooseCollege campaign, which saw Scotland’s colleges come together to share positive stories about how vital colleges are to the educational, economic and community health of the country. The six-week campaign reached over 8.8 million people on social media

Stella McManus, Depute Principal at South Lanarkshire College added “I am delighted that we are taking part in this online information event with other colleges across Scotland. Colleges will be at the centre of the economic recovery post pandemic; supporting their communities, students and local businesses. This event will allow colleges to really showcase all the great opportunities and courses available in 2021 and beyond. I would encourage anyone thinking about studying at South Lanarkshire College in 2021 to consider attending this free event to find out more about how we can help you achieve your potential and look to the future.”
