College goes virtual to welcome prospective students

Sarah Mason 28th Oct, 2020

SOLIHULL Sixth Form College has been going virtual to reach prospective students.

The College held a virtual open day on October 17 which lifted the lid on studying a range of A level, BTEC and CACHE Diploma courses.

These included testimonies from current students, giving those in Year 11 an insight into the step up from GCSE to A level.

As well as hearing from teaching staff, prospective students and parents were also be able to hear from senior management with the principal Dr Martin Sullivan and vice principals on hand to answer questions.

There was also a student panel in which current students were on hand to answer any questions.

The presentations were followed by question and answer session via Microsoft Teams Live Events which saw visitors type in their questions and staff answer them verbally.

Dr Sullivan said: “We would love nothing more than to welcome prospective students and parents onto campus in person, but until we are able to do this we are working hard to ensure no young person is disadvantaged as they consider their post-16 options.

“The October Open Day was a big success and I expect the November open evening to be as well.”

A virtual open evening will be held on November 25 from 5pm until 8pm.
