Newham College taster sessions to support school students choose their next academic journey

This time of year is difficult and stressful for students who are facing their exams and are anxious about making the right choice for the next stage in their education.

Newham College has identified that the most common questions posed by young people today include

1) How will I know if I like the college of my choice?

2) What if I don’t like the course?

3) What if my grades aren’t good enough?

To support this transition and answer any questions that young people may have about their journey from school to further education through a Newham College is putting on a programme of mini events to aid their choices when deciding what college, course or route that they want to take when they finish school.
