New Students’ Day
Tuesday 29 June 2021
We are thrilled to be able to invite you onto campus for your New Students’ Day!
To confirm your attendance, click on the Register button below.
On arrival to campus please make your way to your base room which will have been communicated to you via the email address you provided us. This is where you will meet your lecturers and new classmates and start to familiarise yourself with your curriculum area and learning spaces. If you have not received an email from us, get into contact with us on email@example.com.
You may not have visited the Yeovil College campus before, but don’t worry, there will be lots of staff all wearing Yeovil College t-shirts and lanyards to help direct and support you during New Students’ Day. Attached to your invitation email will be a copy of our campus map so you can gain a better understanding of where you need to be.
Whilst at Yeovil College, you will be taken around the campus to help familiarise yourself with your immediate learning environment and workspaces. You will also visit key areas of the college, including study areas, social spaces, the Learning Resource Centre and food outlets. You will be introduced to your new study programme and will start some work linked to your new curriculum, which will give you a flavour of what to expect from September. We will take some time to talk through our Yeovil Edge programme and set out clear expectations. You will meet the Principal and CEO of Yeovil College, Mark Bolton, ‘virtually’ along with our Head of Student Experience, Michelle Joy. You will see first-hand all the fantastic and career-changing developments happening on campus; Yeovil College is an exciting place to be.
During your New Students’ Day, you will also be officially enrolled onto your study programme, which means you can now call yourself a Yeovil College student. We will take your photo and you will be issued with a lanyard. We also request that you bring your most up-to-date contact information including a valid email address (not your school email address) and a parent’s email address.
Please note: Whilst this is a chance to wear what you want, please remember it needs to be practical for you to take part and get involved in what is asked. Therefore, if you are on a Sport or Protective Services course, we recommend a PE kit and trainers are worn, and for those on Construction or Motor Vehicle courses we recommend you wear clothes you don’t mind getting a little dirty. For all other students, casual clothes are perfect.
