Advice on education options available throughout the summer
26th June 2020
Young people thinking about their options beyond Year 11 can get course information and advice at our Virtual Open Day on Friday 3 July - and all through the summer.
Virtual Open Day
The College’s Virtual Open Day is running from 10am-4pm on Friday 3 July and participants will need to pre-register online.
It is open to anyone, of any age, who is interested in finding out more about the wide range of further education courses, A Levels, Apprenticeship opportunities and career-focused degrees on offer at City College Norwich.
Young people and parents who sign up will be able to join a range of online talks about the college’s courses, support provided to students, and the student experience at City College Norwich and ask questions via online chat.
There is also the option to book one-to-one telephone appointments with college staff, for those who would like:
- general course advice from a qualified adviser, for help in deciding what course is right for them;
- specific course information from teaching staff about a particular course they are interested in;
- information about student support including student finance, travelling to college and SEN support;
- help with admissions and applications, for anyone needing advice or support with applying to college.
Impartial advice and guidance this summer
Students who are unable to attend the Virtual Open Day will still be able to talk to college staff about their options all through the summer, thanks to the college’s Advice Shop.
The Advice Shop offers expert impartial advice and guidance for anyone considering their career, education and training options.
The Advice Shop will be open Monday to Friday, 8.30am to 5pm, throughout the summer.
This service is free both to current students and to young people and adults across Norfolk who need advice and guidance about their next step.
“Making the right choice at 16 is more important than ever”
Corrienne Peasgood OBE, Principal of City College Norwich, said:
We recognise that it has been a very challenging year for young people. Not only have they had to contend with disruptions to their schooling caused by the coronavirus, and exams being cancelled, but they are moving towards a future employment market that is currently full of uncertainties.
Against this backdrop, making the right choice at 16 is more important than ever. The advice we give young people to have not just a Plan A, but also a Plan B and a Plan C, is even more relevant this year. We are ready to support students and parents in making informed choices at this critical point and we’ll be available to help and advise through the summer, around results time, and all the way into September.”
