What could you be doing after your GCSEs?
At Kirklees College, we have a team of people dedicated to helping you decide what you want to do after your GCSEs. From taster sessions, competitions, career advice, and activities, our team is there to answer all your questions and help you get the most out of every opportunity we have available.
Taster sessions are an excellent way for you to try a subject area before you enrol on the course. Our taster sessions are available to years 9 – 13, and would normally take place in college either during the school day or in a twilight session after school.
What are taster sessions?
With so many options available to you, deciding what to do when you finish school can be a difficult decision to make. To help make your decision easier, the Student Recruitment team host a variety of activities across our different curriculum areas to see what you enjoy and make the move to college less daunting.
