We'll be running a series of virtual Discover More events to give our applicants and their parents an insight into life at Burton and South Derbyshire College. They have also been a great opportunity for applicants to ask any questions they may have about starting college. Once you have applied for a course, you and your next of kin will automatically receive invites to the virtual events via email. The virtual events will take place on the following dates:

  • Thursday 30th June - 'First day sorted'

During this session, you'll find out more about our maths and English provision and the range of support on offer to students who need to resit their maths and English GCSEs alongside their vocational course.

Join Chris, Emma and Fran to help prepare you for starting college in September. This session will focus on getting to know your way around the college. We’ll help you understand your application process and what to expect between now and the start of term.

Chris, Emma and Fran will help to support you during your transition to starting at the college. We speak with staff and students to dispel four of the common myths we hear about college life. You will be introduced to Chloe, who is able to support with any financial concerns you might and Osa our college counsellor has also sent us a message of support and some tips to help you transition from school to college. 

This session will focus on getting to know your way around the college and an introduction to our student services.
