We're Staying Connected - Live Presentation Week

Mon 22 to Thu 25 March

The Schools Engagement team are hosting four days of live presentations for Years 9 – 13 this March, to ensure you can still access information that will help to support you choices at 16 and 18. Ideal for anyone who has missed the virtual talk in their school, or just wants to find out more about our offer, our presentations will cover a range of topics delivered by expert staff, with a Q&A Chat option available for you to ask questions. Presentations will take place at set times, either at morning registration, lunchtime or after-school. Individual pupils or whole class groups can sign-up for each talk. Simply register below.

School Engagement

In light of current social distancing guidelines, we will still find a way to support you and your pupils. For example, offering virtual sessions, and smaller group workshops and presentations. Visit our In Your School page for more information.

West Suffolk College’s mission is to help work with young people in local schools and sixth form colleges, and their parents and carers, giving them the best impartial information and advice about future prospects and opportunities. We work closely with schools to support them in their delivery of the eight Gatsby Benchmarks*, by offering a full range of activities in and outside the school. Depending on the group size, location and the time of the year, activities can be tailored to meet your needs. All of these activities are designed to help your pupils make informed decisions about their future.
