Tours and Tasters for Schools

The College is offering large selection of opportunities in 2018 for Taster Days at Easton and Otley campuses.

On these Taster Days your school can bring up to 200 pupils at once and we will teach sessions from horticulture to engineering and many others. Subjects are selected from the list below, and will be subject to change, but we can normally offer most of these in one day.

Subjects include:

  • Agriculture - work with livestock
  • Sport - learn a range of sports activities
  • Public Services - have a go at a variety of activities including Archery
  • Horticulture - learn how to pot or propagate plants, or test the soil
  • Arboriculture - safe tree climbing as done by professionals - taught by professionals
  • Floristry - make professional button holes for a wedding
  • Engineering - learn a practical aspect of maintaining either a car or tractor
  • Construction - learn a trade - such as brickwork or plastering

Please book in advance and we will be able to accommodate your pupils, and give them a fantastic learning experience at the college.

Tasters and Tours fall into four categories:

  1. School Taster Dates - arranged with the school, your pupils get a taste of four different vocational subjects in a day. For Years 8 to 13
  2. Discovery Days - where pupils attend in half term, brought by parents, and learn one practical subject all day. For years 7 to 13
  3. Tours & Tasters - for small groups maximum 15, and these can be arranged almost any date. We normally give them a single taster session as well as the tour. For years 7 to 13
