Our Ser­vices

The Schools Team at Not­ting­ham Col­lege is ded­i­cat­ed to work­ing in part­ner­ship with schools to help young peo­ple make informed deci­sions about their future.

We offer a vari­ety of activ­i­ties, pre­sen­ta­tions and work­shops, both at the Col­lege and in schools, to enable your stu­dents to learn more about the range of oppor­tu­ni­ties avail­able to them. The Schools Team aims to raise aspi­ra­tions and ensure stu­dents are aware of the oppor­tu­ni­ties avail­able to them in fur­ther and high­er edu­ca­tion, pro­vid­ing a com­pre­hen­sive ser­vice to allow stu­dents to make a suc­cess­ful transition.

Activities at School: Interactive Presentations and Workshops

Our ser­vice includes pre­sen­ta­tions and work­shops about the following:

  • Col­lege Pathways
  • Apply­ing to College
  • Under­stand­ing Apprenticeships
  • Inter­view Skills
  • Under­stand­ing High­er Education

Activities at Nottingham College

Taster ses­sions

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. 

Col­lege Visits

We can pro­vide an in-depth cam­pus tour, show­ing stu­dents our fan­tas­tic facil­i­ties and the com­pre­hen­sive range of cours­es avail­able at each campus. 

Employ­a­bil­i­ty Days

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
