Deeside College is committed to working with schools in North Wales, Cheshire, the Wirral and the surrounding areas to enable pupils to find out about Deeside College and make the right choice for their future.
Our aim is to assist in making the transition from school to a course at Deeside College as smooth and easy as possible. We therefore spend a lot of time working with staff in schools and Careers Wales to ensure that they are aware of our courses in order to inform pupils and their parents/guardians of the opportunities we have to offer. Most importantly we are able to come into schools to speak to pupils who may be considering a course at one of Deeside College’s sites.
The team can come and visit your school to deliver a wide range of sessions to ensure pupils are familiar with what is available to them in order to help them succeed.
