Post 16 Taster Day – Friday 121th January 2019

As part of our Post 16 induction process we will be hosting a ‘Post 16 Taster Day’ on Friday 11th January 2019.

During the day, DSTC students experience a day in the life of a Post 16 student.  They will find out more about the different subjects they are interested in by participating in a number of lessons and enrichment activities. Students will also have full access to the Post 16 facilities for the day.

Students are required to choose the subjects they would like to attend for taster day and are provided with a personalised timetable. Students are not required to wear uniform, but should be smartly dressed, a buffet lunch is also be provided for everyone.

Getting Started in Post 16 – Wednesday 26th June to Friday 28th June 2019

The ‘Getting Started’ days are made up of a series of lessons, enrichment activities and orientation opportunities. These provide students with an introduction to the courses they are looking to study and will enable them to take away some additional reading and research to do over the summer to give you a real head start when they join Post 16 in September.  The enrichment activities have been planned for this year includes; Team Building Skills; a Careers Fair and help with writing an effective CV and personal statement.

There are at least two lessons running for each subject, so if you are undecided about the subject you would like to study, you can attend lessons in as many subjects as you wish. In addition to this you will be given a dedicated Form Tutor for these 3 days, who will be available to help and support you and you will have full access to the Post 16 facilities.

Please see the “Getting Started” page of the website for more information and links to Summer Work for students.
