PEOPLE looking to find their perfect career or looking for a career change are invited to a range of free taster sessions at West Cheshire College this summer.
Prospective students have the chance to experience what it could be like to work as an engineer, beautician, sports coach, chef or fashion designer.
The taster sessions also include extracting DNA in the college’s science labs, a day in the life of a fire cadet, an introduction to nail art, a workshop in theatre and dance; being a member of cabin crew on the mock air cabin for a day, designing a T-shirt and developing a computer game.
Helen Nellist, vice principal at West Cheshire College, said: “The summer tasters are an excellent opportunity for school-leavers to come and experience what it is like to study on one of our courses.
“We are a vocational college so the courses are very hands-on and we have designed the summer tasters to incorporate this. We want to give young people a real flavour of what to expect.
“We offer such a wide variety of subjects at college and there is definitely something for everybody – it’s a real chance to try something that you’ve always been interested in but never had the opportunity.”
The tasters are running throughout July and August at both the college’s Ellesmere Port and Chester campuses. Places for each session are based on a first come, first served basis.
