New Principal says ‘we transform futures and it’s never too late to enrol…’

On Friday 1st September, Nicola Cove commenced the role of Principal and CEO of Furness College, which incorporates Barrow Sixth Form.

Nicola Cove says:

“I am delighted to be leading a College which places students at the centre of everything we do, working in partnership to move lives and transform futures.

 Furness College has had a fantastic year of results with our students achieving excellent outcomes and progressing to their chosen destination of university study, an apprenticeship or employment.

 The College continues to work tirelessly in providing a curriculum which responds to the local skills agenda, whilst supporting our students to achieve and progress to their chosen destination.

 We are very proud of the achievements of our students, and feel sure that they will thrive, whether that be in University study or employment.

 Enrolment for courses starting in September 2023 is still open and will remain open over the coming weeks to support new and returning students, so it’s not too late to put in place a plan that is right for you!”

From a huge range of vocational courses and Apprenticeships, T Levels, A levels and high-quality University level programmes, Furness College can provide you with the perfect next step towards your dream future. Even if you have already secured a place for September, there is still time to explore your options.

Across our two main campuses, we are hosting some specific student advice sessions at Channelside & Rating Lane on Wednesday 13th September at 3pm – 5pm.

(If you can, remember to bring your proof of address and exam qualifications, that way we can enrol you on the spot!)

You can also drop-in to either of our campuses between 9am -5pm Monday – Friday and explore the options on offer and find out how we can best support you to take those next steps. If you’re not sure what it is you want to do next, a member of our Careers team will be on hand to offer you advice and guidance, which could include financial support with getting to College.

Nicola Cove, Principal & CEO added:

 “Over the summer, the first phase of the transformation of our specialist sixth form campus at Rating Lane has been completed, which is part of an exciting multi-million-pound investment in the campus with the final phase due to complete in the summer of 2024.

 There are lots of things our current and former students love about Furness College, including the fantastic industry-standard facilities and our highly knowledgeable and experienced lecturers.

So, please feel free to visit our campuses to find out what we can do for you and to see everything that we have to offer. There really has never been a better time to join Furness College.”
