Taster Sign-up at Open Evening

The Sixth Form College, Solihull is holding an Open Evening on Thursday 9 November (5.00 – 8.00pm) and giving prospective students the chance to sign up to twilight taster sessions at this event.

Pre-registration for this Open Evening, which takes place at the Widney Manor Road campus, is now open. The College will be open from 5.00 – 8.00pm on 9 November, with a last entry time of 7.30pm. All prospective students must be accompanied by a parent or other adult.

Tasters in Dance, Ancient History & Classical Civilisation, Geography & Geology, Philosophy & RS, Visual Arts, Russian, BTEC Health & Social Care, BTEC Sport, Childcare & Education, Music, Criminology and the new Basketball Academy (run in conjunction with the City of Birmingham Basketball Club) will be running next month and sign-up sheets for all these tasters will be available in the rooms that these courses will be based at Open Evening. Prospective students and parents can also sign up by providing their names, current schools and email addresses by email.

College Principal Martin Sullivan commented:

“We had a lot of interest in the College and in these taster sessions at our Open Day in October, but this Open Evening provides another opportunity for students to find out about the courses we offer. Not all our courses are running autumn taster sessions, but with new courses in Criminology, Geology and Philosophy, tasters in these courses are a great way to show why students should be picking these new courses.

“Every study who gets an offer to study with us next September will be invited to attend taster sessions at our Welcome to College Day event next June, but having an earlier taste of some of our courses can help students to decide whether they should be applying for these courses or not.”

As well as the taster sessions, Open Evening provides an excellent opportunity for prospective students and parents to find out about all our courses, with teachers and current students available in all curriculum areas. Specialist staff in Careers, Additional Learning Support and Academic Coaching will also be available to tell students and parents about the support offered to students during their time at College. A number of Higher Education institutions will also be in attendance.
