Activities at Nottingham College
Held at our Nottingham College campuses across the city, interactive taster sessions give students the opportunity to experience the college setting as well as a chance to go hands on with a range of exciting subjects. If we offer a vocational course in it, students can give it a try. These are available to small groups with similar interests, larger groups or even whole year groups as either a full or half day. Whatever your needs, we can arrange a bespoke day at one or more of our campuses.
We can provide an in-depth campus tour, showing students our fantastic facilities and the comprehensive range of courses available at each campus.
School groups are invited along to participate in an industry-style day where they can find out more about a particular industry sector, for example catering ‚construction, sport or hair and beauty . Students can participate in a variety of different workshops during the day, providing them with a fantastic opportunity to have a go at various activities and find out all they need to know about a particular industry
Apprenticeship & Employability Fair
During National Apprenticeship Week the College delivers its annual Apprenticeship & Employability Fair. Sector and industry specialists are available to help students understand the benefits of an apprenticeship and the types of roles, careers and progression opportunities available. A number of activities will be taking place including an information area for employers/training providers and interactive demonstrations.
