Find your Feet is a selection of subject specific tasks that students can choose to complete. These tasks have been constructed to give them an insight into what each course involves.
The work includes a combination of tasks, research, recommended reading, websites and online learning for students to try out.
Students can choose to complete the Find your Feet tasks for the subjects they are wanting to study to make sure that they fully understand what is involved. Alternatively, if students are still unsure of their course combination or not yet made an application to the College then they can try multiple subjects. There is no limit on how many subjects students can try.

Assessing and measuring the impact of our careers provision:
We use the GATSBY Benchmarking system to ensure that our careers provision steadily grows and improves year on year. We also aim to assess impact through regular evaluations such as questionnaires of student and parent voice. We work closely, every term, with the Local Authority (Stoke on Trent and Staffordshire Careers and Enterprise Company). We currently review our careers provision every term.
The date of our next review is June, 2020.
