I am a teacher / career advisor
Our group tours provide the opportunity to gain an insight into course options and familiarisation of College facilities, also a welcome talk and introduction of all aspects of support which are available.
Links with key staff to aid transition
We work closely with Curriculum Leaders and members of the Safeguarding and Additional Learning Support Teams to ensure that transition goes as smoothly as possible for students where they may need any extra support.
Tours for individuals
We are happy to discuss the needs of your school and students, don’t hesitate to get in touch.
We hold a number of Open Events throughout the year at key times to give young people an opportunity to visit the College, speak with tutors about the courses available, and enquire about any additional support.
Visitors are able to book to attend our Open Events via our website, and also participate in subject area taster sessions.
At Dearne Valley College and the other colleges within the RNN Group (Rotherham College and North Notts College) we are committed to working in partnership with local schools and agencies to provide a wide range of high quality technical programmes that help prepare young people for the next stage of their lives. We believe that the services we provide enhance your school’s careers programme through the emphasis we place on lifelong learning and employability.
All of our programmes are designed to:
- Equip students with real-life, hands-on skills to prepare them for their future career
- Develop resilience and self-awareness
- Help raise aspirations and attainment
- Support transition into post-16 education
Students will be taught in our purpose-built, industry-standard facilities by our highly qualified teaching staff, many of whom come from specialist industry backgrounds who can pass on their skills and knowledge.
