Following on from the success of our Subject Saturdays programme, we are running some more virtual subject tasters in the Easter holidays. Both sessions are virtual so you can log on from home and sessions are led by students at University and College as well as leading names in industry and University lecturers.

Each session is designed to be fun and filled with hands on activities that open-up opportunities for future study and careers. You don’t need any prior knowledge, just sign up and come with lots of enthusiasm. Details of each session are provided below:
