With several interactive subject stalls set up, North Notts College has been helping students get stuck in with thinking about their futures at the What Next in North Notts event.
Held at North Notts Community arena on Tuesday 1st October, the event aims to inspire the next generation of school leavers as to what local further study and career opportunities are available. With over 2,000 students bussed in from various local secondary schools, North Notts College held some of the 100 exhibitor stalls at the bustling event. The event was also open to the public in the evening.
North Notts College Curriculum Team Leader for Sport David Merris represented Sport at the event with the help of North Notts College Sport student volunteers. A cycling challenge was set up where visitors were encouraged to see how far they could cycle in six seconds.
David said: “We’ve had a fantastic number of students take part in our cycle challenge; some of them have done really well!
“Lots of these visiting students are interested in Sport and very keen to learn more about what we offer which is great. I look forward to seeing them again at our upcoming open event.”
Childcare Assessor Emma Jackson also held an interactive exhibition, inviting visitors to make sensory balls out of cornflour and bird models out of paper, pegs and string.
Emma said: “We’ve had a lot of local students come up to us saying they’re interested in Childcare. It’s been really encouraging to see their interest and eager to find out more information about what we offer.”
