• At this time of year, we’re usually looking forward to welcoming you to a Year 10 Taster morning at the College. Sadly, it has not been possible to host these days safely and with appropriate social distancing in place. This year, we have launched a special virtual Year 10 Taster day- here you can explore the range of courses we offer and discover more about our enrichment offer, our support packages and how we can support you to achieve your goals. We look forward to when we can welcome you to Huddersfield New College (HNC) when it is safe to do so- until that point, we hope you enjoy the activities our outstanding teaching staff have prepared for you.

    Below you can find our Year 10 taster tasks which will help you to gain a flavour of what to expect from these subjects at HNC. Some subjects you will recognise from school, and some subjects will be brand new to you. We recommend taking some time to explore a range of different subjects as this will enable you to genuinely understand the options available to you post-16. It may also help you to research what subjects are needed for your career aspirations. For example, if you're aiming for a career in Medicine or Dentistry, subjects such as Biology, Chemistry and Maths would be useful to explore at this stage. 

    You can choose to take part in as many taster activities as you like, and each task should take you no longer than 30 minutes to complete. For further course information, please visit our website.

    We recommend you watch this short video to ensure you get the best out of our Virtual Year 10 Taster experience.
