An open day at George Street tomorrow (Friday) will introduce the new Hull School of Health and Social Care to staff, prospective students and professionals working in the social services sector.


The school has been created as part of the restructuring of the University of Lincoln and will move from its present base at the Cottingham Road campus to the city centre campus in George Street in the summer of 2003.


The open day will highlight the university’s programmes in Social Work and Child Studies and will be an opportunity to explain to staff, students and social care professionals in the region how the school will develop in the future.


“We have invited a range of interested parties to hear about our plans for the school and the proposed move to George Street,” said marketing officer Nick Sandham, who is organising the event.


“We also want to reaffirm the very strong links between the university in Hull and the social care sector in the Humber region.”


Mr Sandham said there would be an opportunity for prospective students to look round the city centre campus and its facilities, including accommodation and learning support.


The event will begin at George Street at 12 noon tomorrow and will end at 3.30pm.


Don Blackburn, Head of the Hull School of Health and Social Care, will give a presentation on the future development of the university’s health and social care courses in Hull.
