Taster Days

SHC Taster Week

Picking the right course can be stressful and confusing. At SHC we run taster days for each of our subjects so you can get some hands on experience of what our courses offer. 

If you want to take part in any of our taster sessions, submit an application today!

A-Level Studies

Our A-Level pathways are designed to take you straight to university on the course you wish to study. 

At our A-Level taster day, you can sample any of our A-Level subjects. You are able to choose which sessions you would like to attend. We will release a grid of the times that sessions are taking place closer to the day.

Hospitality & Catering  

The Hospitality & Catering taster session runs differently to our other taster days; this is because it takes place over a two week period to analyse your key skills and ensure that the level and course is right for you.

Catering Taster Course: Monday 15th June 2020 - Wednesday 1st July 2020

If you have any questions about the Hospitality & Catering courses or the taster session, please do not hesitate to contact the curriculum leader: Sarah.Wells@shc.ac.uk

Inclusive Learning 

The Inclusive Learning department have their taster day on a separate day to every other department and subject.

Taster Day: Thursday 25th June 2020

 

"The taster day was excellent, I had lots of fun on the climbing wall and I got to try a few different subjects."
