Here at your HNC you will enjoy a fantastic range of unique opportunities outside of the classroom. These will not only enhance your wider College experience but also your future prospects. Taking part in enrichment is fun and enjoyable – and also a real investment in your future self.
We are continuously reviewing our enrichment offer and this year we launched a brand new strand to our enrichment offer with the introduction of our Lunchtime Bites programme.
This is part of our wider enrichment programme and offers a range of clubs and activities that take place during the lunch break – meaning you can easily fit them into your College day. These change in response to student demand, but current Lunchtime Bites opportunities include:
- Male and female boxing
- Bold Branding
- British Sign Language (BSL) classes
- HNC Debate Club
plus many more!
Volunteering develops a whole host of skills whilst enabling you to give back. As a student at HNC you can become one of our Student Ambassadors. You could be an Equality and Diversity Student Ambassador, a Student Well-being Champion or represent your subject. You might also apply to be a Head Student, Student Governor or decide to help raise funds for our College Charities of the Year. All of this counts towards your VInspired certificate.
Achieving an additional qualification enhances your skills and knowledge and helps you to stand out from the crowd. You can undertake your Duke of Edinburgh's Award (DofE), become a Microsoft Office Specialist, undertake the Extended Project Qualification (EPQ) or even gain industry based qualifications such as the Level 3 Coaching award and NCFE Air Cabin Crew.
Today universities and employers look for much more than a good set of grades. We’ll help you to prepare for life beyond HNC with a range of workshops and opportunities such as work experience.
Getting creative builds your confidence and ability to express yourself. You can enjoy a vast range of opportunities, including joining our Short Story competition, writing for the HNC Echo or expressing yourself in an artistic medium for the SFCA national exhibition.
Join one of our Sports Teams and represent HNC, or take part in national competitions such as the UK Senior Maths Challenge. We like to win here at Huddersfield New College!
Trying something new is a great way to build your confidence, and your cultural capital. We’ll encourage you to do this in a range of ways – you can join our book club, perform in a show or join our crafting club.
Staying physically active helps build resilience and good mental health and well-being. This puts you in the very best position to achieve your best - both academically and personally! You can use our onsite Fitness Suite, trial for a Sports Academy, or even join one of our regular Strava challenges.
