A group of our Year 11 learners were invited to a Taster Day at Riverside College recently. The day gave them a great opportunity to have small taster sessions in the most popular courses, meet some of the tutors and to get a good understanding of the support Riverside College has to offer. The sessions included Hair and Media Makeup, Health and Social Care, Mechanics and Motor Vehicle, Construction and Hospitality and Catering. Two of our learners hadn’t quite made up their minds about their college career, however the Taster Day supported them in making a decision and they both left Riverside College with offers of a place on their chosen course, starting in September.
All eight learners had a wonderful time and commented on how good it was to experience what college was going to be like. They conducted themselves with integrity and participated fully and with enthusiasm during each session. They were an absolute credit to The Grange and we are extremely proud of them.
