City College Plymouth are inviting all 14 to 16 year olds to ‘have a go’ with some fun and free taster sessions this half term.
From Monday 16 February to Friday 20 February, a week of free taster sessions for Years 10 and 11 will run across both the College’s Kings Road and Goschen campuses. The half day sessions will give young people the chance to find out more about the courses on offer and ‘do it for real’.
City College Plymouth’s well-established business networking event, the Employer Endorsement Scheme Breakfast, will welcome special guest speaker Joanne Anning, CEO of Jeremiah’s Journey, to address the recent controversy surrounding the charity sector.

Whether you are a young person who wants a different experience from school, are unemployed or are looking for your next step; or you are someone who is hoping to improve your career prospects, change direction or return to work, then this open day is for you.

Phil Davies, Principal & Chief Executive of City College Plymouth, said:
Education Secretary, Nicky Morgan MP, has announced the creation of a new careers and enterprise company for schools, which aims to transform the provision of careers education and advice for young people and inspire them to explore the opportunities offered by the world of work.
The new company is part of the government’s aim that schools, colleges and employers should work in partnership to spread outstanding careers advice, guidance and inspiration to every young person across the country, regardless of their background or location.
Christmas Elves from City College Plymouth’s creative traineeship programme brought smiles to Devonport Guildhall’s Christmas Market with a unique “Find Santa tour”.
Putting a twist on the idea of ‘Santa’s grotto’, children were asked to help the elves find Santa Claus, who was missing in action. Each of the students adopted their own Christmassy character and took the children around the building looking for clues as to where Santa could be.
Exams are now upon us and, whatever the results, City College Plymouth can help you with your next steps.
