Collaborative taster days

Subject-specific tasters created with our partners and local employers

We have collaborated with our higher education partners and local businesses to develop a number of subject-specific taster days. Held online, these are delivered by experts in their fields with keynote speakers, important insights, overviews of sectors and related careers, real-life examples from people who used their subject knowledge as a stepping-stone to a satisfying career, and interactive sessions. We have run taster days for English, Business and Finance, Education and Police and Criminology, and plan to extend this to further subjects.
