Thousands visit website for virtual Open Day

The New City College virtual Open Day held on Saturday 16th January attracted an astonishing 10,000 visits to the host website.

Although students and parents were not able to come onto the campus sites because of the national lockdown, there were 1,400 registered attendees to the subject sessions which were held online.

Visitors signed in to watch and listen to presentations by teachers on Microsoft Teams and to ask questions about the college and the courses on a live Chatify platform.

There was also a chance to get advice on supported learning, careers, university progression and financial support.

One of the most popular sessions was Ask Your Peers where current student ambassadors were online and answering questions from prospective students about college life.

Other sessions proving popular were Health & Social Care, Construction, Sport, Creative Arts and A Level Biology, Psychology and Law.
