Staff and students showcased a variety of the courses on offer in various parts of Huddersfield Town before and at half time of their match against Burnley on Saturday.
The event highlighted the upcoming open evenings at the college’s eight centres and also promoted National Apprenticeship Week which followed.
Public service students helped with stewarding and Peter Jones Enterprise Academy students networked with business partners.

Performing arts students danced with Town mascot Terry the Terrier before kick-off, music from an acoustic duo was the entertainment for VIPs and animal care will took along some special friends to meet the crowds.

Parents and children got creative in the family stand and took part in The Big Draw by making their mark on a huge picture wall, organised by the college’s art and design team.
Business students helped sell programmes and worked in the retail store, and travel and tourism students asked fans what their favourite thing is about Huddersfield to be able to create a fan’s guide to Huddersfield.

There was penalty shoot-out with our Sports students at half time as well as arts, photography and fashion displays.
Kirklees College principal Peter McCann said, “It was an excellent event for our students and to work with Huddersfield Town to raise the profile of the college in the business and wider community.”
Huddersfield Town’s Senior Commercial Manager Tracy Nelson added:
“The annual dedicated Kirklees College game is always an exciting day in our calendar and this weekend’s game certainly didn’t disappoint, with a wider range of activities from college students than ever before.
“From the animals in the family stand to the dancers on the pitch, the college’s efforts certainly added to the match day experience.”
Special films made for Huddersfield Town’s HTTV by media students from the college were played on the screens across the stadium and visitors could also find out about the college’s new Process Manufacturing Centre, which opens later this year.
The day was a huge success both in terms of raising the profile of the college and giving a great experience to students.
