Not yet sure what career you want in the future? Why not try one of our ‘taster sessions’ to help you find out more about the career that you are interested in. The taster sessions are fun and interactive, making use of technology to give you a “taste” of each career opportunity. During the last week of the course you also get an opportunity to spend a few hours in an organisation and experiencing your selected career choice.

After the session you will be better informed and can take the next step towards pursuing further education by accessing a Level 1 or Level 2 course.
