Taster Events

We offer so many post-16 courses, you may find it hard to narrow your choices to three or four A Levels, or one Vocational subject. That's why we offer Taster Events, to give you a feel for the subjects you can study and to make your application easier.


Progression Event

These impartial information events are for Year 11 for sixth form, further education or apprenticeships. These online and in-person mini expos take place in September/October each year and bring together the main providers of post 16 education in our area. The online event remains open all year for you to explore and watch the presentations on-demand.

Each institution has a stand with course information and staff available to speak to regarding your particular interests. In addition, there will be information from the Principal of Shrewsbury Colleges Group spotlighting how different qualifications work and allow you to progress to university and employment.


Open Evening

These happen in the Autumn and Spring terms and are primarily aimed at Year 11s / school leavers and provide an opportunity to visit our three campuses, see our facilities and chat with teachers and current students about what our courses involve and what student life is like. College support staff are on hand for advice on careers, transport and finance and there are presentations from the principal.

Classrooms and workshops have demonstrations and you’ll be able to visit other areas including our learning resource centres, social spaces and cafes. We also offer a virtual Open Event that's available to explore 24/7.
