Post 16 Options Roadshows
We have successfully delivered these information events to help local young people begin to think about their post 16 choices for the last four years. We aim to continue providing this valuable information for year 11 pupils in 2021, whilst adhering to Coronavirus safety guidelines*.
Post 16 Options Roadshows are information events for pupils leaving Year 11 for sixth form, further education or apprenticeships. These free to attend mini expos typically take place in September/October each year and brings together the main providers of post 16 education in the area. 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 explaining how the different qualifications work and allow you to progress to university and employment.
Following the success of our Virtual Post 16 Roadshows, we will continue to offer an online version of the event to help you explore your options in advance of attending an in-person event.
*We will continually review the arrangements and keep you updated.
These are primarily aimed at Year 11s / school leavers and happen in October/November each year. They 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.
Following the success of our Virtual Open Evenings, we will continue to offer an online version of the event to help you explore your options in advance of attending an in-person event.

Places on Open Evenings need to be pre-booked so we can manage numbers, provide a quick check-in and give you the best experience possible.
We offer such a wide range of Post 16 courses, it can be hard to narrow down your choices to three/four A Levels or one Vocational subject, lots of which will be brand new to you and not studied at school.
That's why we run a number of subject Taster Events throughout the year which are a great opportunity to get a better feel for the courses we offer and which ones you may want to apply for. The on-site events also provide you with an idea of what College life is like.
Advice Events are an opportunity for school leavers and adult returners to speak to our tutors and support teams about studying A Levels, Vocational full-time and part-time courses, Higher Education courses and Apprenticeships at Shrewsbury Colleges Group.
Whether you want to improve your career prospects, gain promotion, find a hobby or improve your practical skills, we will have a course for you.
