Try out your course before September

Young people who are considering their next steps in education in September can take part in free taster courses at East Riding College this summer.
The courses are aimed at 16 to 18-year-olds who are still considering their options and are available at the College’s Beverley, Bridlington and Hull campuses.
Everyone who takes advantage of the tasters will complete a qualification and find out more about the course they are considering for next year. Each person can enrol on more than one taster and some tasters include off-site visits too.

Alison Gray, assistant director at the College, said: “These taster sessions will give you the opportunity to meet our tutors, try out a subject and find out what it’s like to come to East Riding College.
“You can gain valuable experience of what it’s like to study in a college environment and make new friends, as well as applying to start a course in September and gaining a qualification.”

The sessions generally take place for one day a week over three weeks. The subjects and the date of their first session are as follows:

•             A-levels, July 8
•             Art, design and media, July 11
•             Business, July 1
•             Catering and hospitality, July 8
•             Construction, July 11
