Taking place throughout the October half-term holidays, pupils can try their hand at a wide range of vocational courses available at Dearne Valley College.

Vocational course areas on offer include: Engineering and Technology, Sport, Construction Skills, Beauty Therapy, Catering, Graphic Design and iMedia, Public Services,

Travel and Tourism.

Mark Hepworth, Assistant Admissions Manager, commented:

“Deciding what to do next and indeed where to continue further study can be a difficult decision. Our taster sessions aim to give prospective students an insight into what college life would be like”.

Participants will also meet tutors and support staff, speak to current full-time students and apply on the day for full-time courses starting September 2012.

Richard Ellis, Programme Area Manager for Construction, commented:

“The Construction tasters will consist of a range of practical activities such as basic building methods in brickwork and producing basic wood working joints in joinery. These activities will give students an excellent insight to the different construction trades available at DVC but also what is expected as a full-time student”.
