College event offers New Start
MORE than 360 unemployed young people turned up at City College Plymouth to find out how they can make a new start to their career in 2013.
The New Start, held each January at the Kings Road campus in Devonport, is aimed at people aged between 16 and 18 who are not engaged in employment or training.
The college promoted courses to those wanting to improve their employment prospects, or even just to take up a hobby.
Part-time courses range from car maintenance for ladies to Easter chocolate making, contemporary dance for beginners and professional bar-tending.

It was also for those looking for a further education course or an apprenticeship programme.
The college has January starts available in subjects including construction trades, information technology, media, dance, creative sound engineering, music, live events production, performing arts, sport, leisure, public services and travel and tourism, the college says.
Staff from its work-based learning department were on hand at the event to discuss apprenticeship programmes, the Prince's Trust Team Programme, Jumpstart and its Personalised Learning Programme.
Kate Morris, the college's marketing officer, said: "It was great to see so many people attend the event and get the information, advice and guidance they needed.
"Many visitors applied for courses across a range of subjects and we look forward to seeing them around the college very soon."
The college will also be staging a Year 11 open evening on Thursday, January 31, from 4pm to 7pm which will focus on the full-time courses on offer for those looking to join in September.
