HE Taster Event at East Surrey College

HE Taster Event at East Surrey College

Date: 25 April 2024

Yesterday at East Surrey College we hosted a Higher Education Taster event for ESC and external students to learn more about different educational avenues and support them in their career choices once they finish A-Levels.

We welcomed 31 students from Hazelwick College and our Level 3 Students across campus.

The morning started with an overview about Higher Education, taking the students through why people choose HE, the various levels that are offered, introducing them to the OSC opportunities and the courses that we offer. Additionally outlining how they can obtain their educational goals, including a degree level.

Followed by a talk with Ian Edmunds, Group Director of Apprenticeships, explaining the benefits of an apprenticeship, the different levels that are offered nationally and within OSC, as well as the standards and the options that are available. Ian also talked them through the various employment options and how apprenticeships can boost your position when applying for various roles.

Once the talks concluded, the students then went off into groups within a course area of their choice to learn more about the course, the college and what they can achieve here at East Surrey College.

Seidu Salifu, HE – Quality & Development Lead at Orbital South Colleges said this about the event, “The programme went well as we expected. We are excited to announce more events next academic year, that we hope will be even bigger and better. A big thank you to the lecturers who facilitated the taster sessions, the students really enjoyed the event.”

This was a fantastic opportunity for Level 3 Year 1s and A-Level students to learn more about the next steps in their education pathway, to reach their career goals.
