Year 10 Taster Days -  Barnstaple Campus

The Taster Day works in conjunction with local schools to give Year 10 pupils an opportunity to experience a day at Petroc as a college student. The day gives pupils an insight into college life, and an understanding of the step up from School to Further Education. It also supports the important careers work carried out within schools to help pupils decide on an appropriate course. The Taster workshops are suitable for pupils aiming to undertake a Level 1 to Level 3 qualification when they finish school. We currently welcome pupils from ten partner schools in the North Devon region.

There will be a range of workshops on offer which could include:-

Animal Care and Management
Architecture and Surveying and Construction Management
Art and Design
Beauty, Nails and Spa Therapies
Business Enterprise and Administration
Computing and IT
Creative Media
Engineering and Manufacturing
Hairdressing and Barbering
Health and Social Care
Hospitality and Catering
Performing Arts
Public Services and Outdoor
Motor Vehicle and Body Repair
Music and Music Technology
Sport, Fitness and Personal Training
Travel and Tourism
