Year 11 Destinations Day

Welcome to our Year 11 Destinations Day where you will have the opportunity to look at the college and apprenticeship pathways via pre-recorded presentations and live sessions.  You will be given time to explore a wealth of courses, identify employability skills, and hear from real apprentices from local employers.

We hope this day will help widen your ambitions and aim high for where you want to be in the future.
