Careers events - Day or evening events. Stands with literature to hand out to students, parents/guardians or staff. Available to give talks and advice about which courses suit future career aspirations.

Parent Evenings - Available to all year groups to give information or advice to students, parents/guardians. We can set up a stand or deliver talks at the parents evenings.

Information sessions - These sessions are available to all year groups to ensure that students are aware of college requirements and expectations.  These sessions can be tailored to your unique needs.

Open days / evenings - HNC holds three open events a year where all students are invited to look around the campus, talk to subject specific staff as well as career advisors, listen to a talk from the principal and speak to student ambassadors. The School Liaison team are available to attend school open days and events.

Transition visits - These are visits that happen both at college and in schools, preparing students for the step up to college. These are available to students on a one-to-one basis or in groups. There are also opportunities for a one-to-one tour around HNC.

Mock interviews - These are for students preparing to leave school to seek employment or go on to further education.

Events at HNC - Throughout the year we hold a number of events at HNC where schools are invited to attend with their students. These include the STEM Conference, Fashion Show, Year 10 Days, Hustings and many more.

Curriculum workshops - Each department offers workshops that can be delivered in schools or at the College. This can give students a feel of what’s to come if they choose to study this subject at HNC.

Gifted and Talented - Talks and presentations delivered to gifted and talented students who would become part of the HNC Honours Programme.

Question and answer sessions - Available with a panel of current students or staff, this gives prospective students a chance to ask questions about College and the courses on offer.
