Engagement Team

The Engagement team at Chesterfield College are a specialised team offering support and guidance to schools, students and members of the public, helping them to develop the necessary skills and knowledge to support their future decisions and choices.

For Students

The Engagement team can help you find out about college before you even apply. We can give you a guided tour, support you with your application, arrange for you to attend a taster session or answer any queries you may have. Email engage@chesterfield.ac.uk or call us on 01246 500 500 ext 1644.

If you want to know what a course at Chesterfield College is really like, or you’d like to have a go at the types of things you would be doing when you come to college, then you can attend a taster session during October or February half term. These are designed to enable you to meet staff, sample a range of courses and experience what college life is really like. You can apply for as many tasters as you like but don’t delay; places are allocated on a first come first served basis. If you cannot make it during half term we may be able to arrange a bespoke taster for you, just get in touch.

Does college appear a lot bigger and scarier than school? Then why not book in for a tour and come and have a look around the campus for yourself. We can help you to get an idea of where specific departments are and where you would be studying, you can also bring family and friends along too.

For Schools and Organisations Primary Schools

Since 2013 the Engagement team has expanded their offering to include primary schools. We now offer a variety of sessions to support students with both their personal and social development, this includes a range of interactive and factual workshops such as novel writing and disability awareness. All sessions can be tailored to suit your school’s needs.
