Huddersfield New College is helping Year 10 students to prepare for their post-16 next steps with an upcoming virtual event, HNC @ Home: Year 10.
HNC @ Home: Year 10 is a virtual event where current Year 10 students can start to plan their post-16 journey by finding out more about the course choices available to them at the College. Early planning for your future career is an important part of determining your next steps after school, and from Monday 28th June, via our virtual platform, you can experience:
- Subject activities
- Subject course guides
- Live lesson tasters, via MS Teams, Tuesday 29th and Wednesday 30th June
- Hear from our Principal, Angela Williams OBE
- Explore HNC using our virtual 360 tour
- Take part in a creative writing competition to win a £30 voucher
- Find out more about our award winning College, including enrichment and support
Samantha Daley, Deputy Head of Admissions, comments “At this time of year we are usually ready to welcome thousands of Year 10 students to our outstanding College to experience a day in the life of a HNC student. Sadly, this is unable to take place in its usual format this year, so we have adapted our Year 10 taster days to a virtual event to showcase the choices that are available to students post-16. Next week, students from across Kirklees and Calderdale will be able to take part in our unique virtual HNC @ Home: Year 10 event and experience a range of activities and live lesson tasters, and will also have the opportunity to virtually explore our award winning College. Early post-16 planning is essential to ensuring that our young people are prepared for their future careers beyond their GCSEs and are choosing courses and qualifications that are right for them. I can’t wait to virtually welcome our 2022 students and I look forward to meeting them in person when it is safe to do so”
This event is open to all schools within the Kirklees and Calderdale areas. Partner schools will be sharing the HNC @ Home: Year 10 platform with students from Monday 28th June.
