Petroc Ambitions

Petroc Ambitions provides a series of extra-curricular activities to inspire young people with their progression to Further Education and give them an opportunity to trial some fun, interactive learning at Petroc. It is the intention that these sessions will enhance the learner’s current curriculum activity.

Aimed at Year 10 and 11 students, Petroc Ambitions looks to give school pupils the chance to try a number of different career options before deciding what to do after they finish Year 11.

Petroc Ambitions was launched at the college’s open events at the North Devon Campus in late 2015, we have since run a successful Spring programme and are now launching the Autumn 2016 programme.

After meeting with managers, tutors, students and parents and carrying out research into possible activities, we have compiled a list of subjects students can experience through Petroc Ambitions, and you can find out more information by clicking on the subject.
