Year 11 Half Term College Taster Day - Monday 15th February 2021
Monday, 15 February 2021
Do you fancy trying something a bit different this February half term?
Then why not have a break from your revision and daytime TV and come along to our exciting half term taster event for Year 11 applicants.
The event is a great opportunity for you to get a real taste of life as a student here at East Durham College and meet our fantastic lecturers, so you’ll have no worries about starting your course in September.
You will take part in course-related sessions within the curriculum area you have applied for. These will be interesting, enjoyable and help you to develop new skills - alongside other prospective students just like you. That way you can meet some of the other people you are likely to be classmates with when you start college for real.
We have taster sessions available across all three of our campuses at Peterlee, The Technical Academy and Houghall.
The event is on Monday 15th February 2021 from 10am till 2pm, so why not come along and take part? We’re sure you’ll enjoy the experience!
