Not too late to Apply at DVC

Date: 14/06/2011

Dearne Valley College (DVC) is hosting a summer taster day for local youngsters.

The taster day is an opportunity to give prospective students hands-on experience and build skills for the future whilst having fun.

Taking place on Thursday 28 June 2011, from 10.00am until 3.00pm at the Manvers Campus, the day aims to help youngsters still undecided as to what course they want to study after taking GCSEs.

The Wath based college is focussing on its Business and Travel and Tourism vocational course areas.

Youngsters will step into the Dragon’s Den as part of the Business Taster which will see them receive a fictional budget and deliver their ideas to a panel of judges to see whose concept will go to market.

Others can take part in a travel and tourism interactive participation activity called DVC-side, which was designed by DVC students for students and is facilitated by students. The DVC-Side concept is for teams to design their own seaside resort by buying buildings and attractions with a fictional budget to promote UK coastal tourism.

Steve Hunt, Programme Area Manager for Business, Travel and Tourism commented:

“The summer taster day is aimed at those students who are undecided about which course they want to study after taking GCSEs and would like a flavour of some vocational course areas. We hope the taster session will appeal to young people and make us their choice for further education”.

Participants of the day will also have the opportunity to look at the excellent facilities, chat to course tutors and support staff, speak to current full-time students and apply on the day for full-time courses starting September 2011.

Mark Hepworth, DVC College Information and Advice Officer commented:

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