Visitors can also look around the college sites and experience demonstrations and activities related to courses, employability and enterprise.
Demonstrations will include nail art, hair plaiting and braiding, cooking, media showcases, and student performances.
Parents can also find out about pastoral support, recreational activities, types of qualifications and subjects on offer, including A-levels, vocational courses and university-level study.
Fay Steer, director of marketing and communications, said: "We know parents have a big part to play when it comes to helping young people make plans, and are concerned about future employment opportunities.
"With the Government recently increasing the age at which all young people are required to stay in education or training, now, more than ever, it's important for parents to help young people make the right decisions.
"Raising the participation age is not about raising the school leaving age – young people have options including apprenticeships, full-time courses, or part-time education if they are employed.
"All options offered by City College Plymouth focus on employability and enterprise skills, ensuring that when students leave us they are highly employable, agile and resilient – making the most of any opportunity."
