ESC Live will be taking on a ‘Fearless’ theme this autumn which encourages year 11s to come along, step out of their comfort zone, and have a go at something new.
These showcase events will be crammed with interactive, entertaining, and thought-provoking activities, perfect for potential students to find out what the college has to offer them after Year 11.
Tutors will be on hand to tell prospective students about the college’s brand new curriculum developments. From the start of the next academic year in September 2020, students will be learning key knowledge, skills and behaviours in their chosen subjects. These core elements have been developed alongside local and national employers, meaning students are learning the exact skills that businesses are looking for.
As well as these essential skills, students will also be given more time and opportunities to put their learning into practice during industry placements.
Dan Shelley, Executive Director of Strategic Partnerships and Engagement at East Sussex College says: “These showcase events are our biggest events of the year and always have such a buzz. There is everything from building brick walls to recording your own music track. You’ll be able to explore our campuses and talk to our expert tutors about A-Level subjects, vocational courses and our brand new T-Levels.”
From September 2020, East Sussex College will be one of the first colleges in the country, and the only college in East Sussex, to be offering T-Levels. The government is launching three subjects in Construction, Education, and Digital next year, with plans to roll-out more subjects the following year.
If you’re interested in finding out more about A-Level, Vocational, or T-Level courses then make sure you come along to the college’s open events on Thursday 24th October and Tuesday 26th November at our Eastbourne campus. Both events start at 4:30pm and run until 7:30pm.
