Year 8 Students have been taking part in a Taster Day today. Witchford Village College had been selected by Cambridge Regional College to host the event, giving students an insight into the range of subjects on offer there.
Staff and current students from CRC arrived with a range of vocational based activities for pupils to take part in. Each WVC pupil was able to choose three taster sessions from; Care, Health and Early Years, Sport and Uniformed Services, Travel and Tourism, Gaming, Engineering and Construction. The intention is to give students an opportunity to try out vocational courses in order to assist in decision making for guided pathways and future career choices or aspirations.
The feedback from students was that it was a really informative morning, when they got to try out activities and subjects that are not in their normal curriculum. It was a real eye opener for some and got them thinking about their future.
The staff from CRC were very encouraging to students and brought all resources that were required. We are very grateful to CRC for giving our students an insight into subjects that they may not have considered previously.
