Y9 & 10 Virtual Masterclasses - watch again!

If you missed our 2nd July masterclass evening or want to watch the sessions again, they’re available on catch-up via the links below. These bite-size sessions are designed to give you taste of what we offer at Wilberforce. We run over 65 courses at the college, with something to suit everyone – ranging from A Levels and BTECs through to City & Guilds diplomas.  

You will already have started to make some big decisions about options, then what to do after GCSEs to enable you to land your dream job – whether that’s via going to university, taking an apprenticeship, or going straight into work after two years at 6th form college.  To help you work out your next steps our staff delivered these sessions live on the evening, for you (and your family) to watch and join in. Now you can watch again! We hope they help you get a feel for Wilberforce College, and what we have to offer. 

Closing dates for any competitions mentioned in the sessions will be held open until September.
