School Visits

We have a dedicated recruitment and school liaison team who visit schools across Hertfordshire, Bedfordshire and beyond providing information, advice and guidance on the options available for school leavers.   Alongside delivering presentations and assemblies we can also attend career conventions and fairs, parents evenings and drop-in sessions to give your students the most up-to-date information.  

We can arrange bespoke campus tours to show students everything we have to offer and also hold taster mornings to give students an opportunity to gain some hands-on experience from a wide selection of subjects and to find out what college life is really like.  

Our goal is to ensure the transition between school and college is as smooth as possible by ensuring students are informed about all the post 16 options available to them. 

What we offer:

  • Presentations and talks
  • Careers fairs and conventions
  • Post-16 information events
  • Parents evenings and advice to parents
  • Lunchtime drop-in sessions
  • Taster mornings
  • Campus tours
  • Information on Apprenticeships & Higher Education
  • Careers Partners Day: for school & YC Herts advisers to learn our provision and processes

Twilight Taster Days

Our various Taster Sessions throughout the year give you the opportunity to gain some hands-on experience from a wide selection of subjects and to find out what college life is really like.

We welcome Year 11 students to join us for our Twilight Tasters , which run at both campuses. During the tasters, parents are invited to a presentation on college life and the opportunity to chat with staff about the wide range of opportunities and support available to our students.
