It’s not easy for any of us having to work on a virtual platform but that said our Virtual Tours have been a huge success and Applications continue to flow. I personally really miss coming into schools and speaking to your students. Lets hope that 2021 will be a much better year!
If any of your students who have not yet accessed a Virtual Tour all they need to do is go to our website – facilities – Interactive Virtual Tour. https://www.stamford.ac.uk/college-life/campus-tours
Stamford College are hosting a series of Virtual Open Events.
Follow the instructions below to join.
Why not take advantage of our virtual ‘small group’ sessions for students who may benefit from working within a smaller, informal group. Any students who are not necessarily comfortable asking questions, are encouraged to send them in via their tutors. This can also benefit larger groups. It works incredibly well and gives students food for thought and confidence during challenging times! We aim to make each session as informal and interesting as possible. We encourage them to do their research and explore all further education options.
We are very keen to help wherever we can. Lets hope that 2021 brings us back into a face to face world but in the meantime this really works well! Christmas is fast approaching, I would encourage you to consider booking ASAP while we still have capacity during the next 5 weeks.
