Activities and visits

Welcome lunch (staff only)

This event takes place in September and is an excellent opportunity for heads of Years 11 and 10, careers coordinators and gifted and talented coordinators to receive information about new developments in the curriculum and the student support available at the college, as well as meet key members of NewVIc staff. You will also have a chance to discuss all aspects of school liaison and talk to our staff about any additional information and support you would like from NewVIc.

Assemblies

We can visit your school with current NewVIc students to introduce ourselves and the college within Year 11 and Year 10 assemblies. The assemblies focus on encouraging students to explore their options, visit college open days and work hard at their GCSEs to achieve results and progress.

Parents’ evenings and careers events within schools

We can attend Year 11, Year 10 and Year 9 parents’ evenings, career fairs and progression events in schools. The events offer students the opportunity to speak to our advice and guidance team and ask questions about the college and the courses that interest them.

NewVIc+

NewVIc+ is a programme of subject activities held within the college to encourage students to find out more about a variety of career areas such as medicine and engineering.

Application surgeries

We are available to support your students with filling in their application forms. Application surgeries can be arranged as drop-in sessions at lunch time or after school or they can take place during lesson or tutor time.

Tours

We are able to run tours of the college for school groups. These are a great way for students and staff to find out more about the college.

Open days

Our open days are the ideal chance for students to visit the college with their parents/guardians. They can find out more about courses and see for themselves the outstanding education and facilities at NewVIc.

We can provide your school with more information, leaflets and posters to advertise the events.

Advice evenings

Students are welcome to visit NewVIc after school to find out more about various courses. They can attend one of the advice evenings and talk to our advice and guidance practitioners who can help students explore the next step for their future. Advice sessions start in November and from 5.00pm - 7.00pm. These must be booked in advance.

PHSE and tutor sessions

We can deliver a variety of workshops tailored to your needs. Workshops can be designed to support Year 11 students in choosing courses to study next year or motivate Year 9 and 10 students. These have proved to be successful in helping students to focus their ideas and have stimulated many interesting questions about career areas and the courses that we offer.
