Year 10 pupils research next step to college
Fri, 21 June 2019
School pupils from across the local area were inspired by Tameside College to think about their futures at the Tameside careers and apprenticeships exhibition on Thursday 13th June.
Over 1,000 pupils visited the annual event, which is organised by Tameside Council, and engaged in a range of exciting activities hosted by employers and careers organisations.
Tameside College stands included a virtual reality gaming workshop, photo booth, robotic ‘Faro’ arm demonstration and quick reaction test, to give pupils an insight into college life and career pathways.
Sheree Bedford, school liaison coordinator at Tameside College, said: “Each year the college attends this event, it grows and gets even better than the last. We were really pleased to be able to give school pupils an opportunity to experience what it’s like to be a college student, the amazing equipment we have to offer and what we can do to help them achieve success.”
Tameside College offers a wide range of high quality courses from full time college, apprenticeships, adult and higher education courses and is rated ‘Good’ by Ofsted. To find out more, call 0161 908 6600.
