Free summer school for 16 to 18-year-olds

Young people who are considering their next steps in education in September can join in a range of 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.

Alison Gray, assistant director at the College, said: “Our summer school taster sessions aim to give people 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.
“They 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.“

  • Business, July 8, Beverley and Bridlington.
