Solihull Sixth Form College is holding a Virtual Open Day on Saturday 17 October and prospective students and their parents are being invited to sign up for it online.
The event will include 30-minute subject sessions, scheduled at 9.30am, 10.15am, 11.00am, 11.45am and 12.30pm. Teachers will deliver short presentations to give more information about the courses and follow that with live Question & Answer sessions.
Principal Martin Sullivan will be giving talks at 9.30am and 12.30pm to give students and parents an idea about the ethos of the College. There will also be sessions on the support services available (Academic Coaching, Additional Learning Support, Admissions, etc), Careers Guidance and Student Societies (including the work of Student Council).
Senior staff will also be manning a virtual Help Desk from 9.30am – 1.15pm. Anyone with any general questions can sign up and type in their question to get an answer from one of our Vice Principals.
All sessions will be utilising Microsoft Teams Live Events, which will enable prospective students and parents to join an online session anonymously, hear from staff and type in their questions.
College Principal Martin Sullivan commented, “We are looking forward to welcoming students to our Virtual Open Day. We wish we could have them on campus in person, but in the current circumstances, this is the safest way of ensuring we can reach as many prospective students and parents as possible.”
