What are taster sessions?
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.
Due to the current restrictions we are having to do things differently and are currently creating some virtual sessions that will provide you with information about a specific subject area, useful websites to look at and a task that you can get involved in. These will be available on our virtual resources page before Christmas.
