If you are 14 to 17 years old our tasters are a great way of finding out more about college and the subjects you’re interested in studying after school. You can try out as many taster sessions as you like to help you to narrow down which course you would like to study.

All activities are risk assessed in accordance with college policies and procedures and run under the supervision of suitably qualified staff. All activities are within college campuses and would be undertaken as part of a college course.
