Event description

Description

Northern College Community Learning team spends a considerable amount of time on outreach to potential students and referral organisations. We recognise that new students may feel anxious about entering a college environment, particularly if they have had a negative experience of education in the past. For that reason we have always offered the opportunity to visit us first, meet some of the staff and find out more about the college. These days have been very successful in ensuring that students are fully prepared and know what to expect when they attend course.

In 2018 we have made a slight change to the way in that we organise these visits and have now put in place a number of Invitation Days, which are open to all partners who work within the substance misuse/crime reduction. We feel that:

  • Set dates over the year will help referral organisations to plan ahead and recruit suitable clients they feel would benefit from re-entering education.
  • It will be an opportunity to introduce staff to Northern College so they are confident in making suitable referrals. It is also an excellent networking opportunity for organisations working in similar fields.
  • Clients will meet other potential students from different organisations giving them a better indication of what to expect when they start a short course. We will be introducing Ice-breaker activities so that students can get to know each other on the day.
