Tasters

Get a taste of what studying is like

Tasters are designed to give students a hands on experience of what it might be like to study at NorthTec. As many students are undecided on what they want to do when they leave school, tasters can provide students with new experiences which create an interest in a pathway on to further study and employment. Tutors can also discuss what subjects students will need to take in Year 11-13 to follow a certain pathway.

As our taster programmes do not have credits attached to them, they are aimed at students in Year 9 and Year 10.
