CANDI Sixth Form College hosts A Level taster for incoming students

Year 11 students from a range of schools get a taste of college life during A Level experience event at CANDI’s Sixth Form College in Angel.

City and Islington College’s (CANDI) Sixth Form College opened its doors to students who have applied to study with them in the coming academic year. On 20 March, Year 11 students hoping to begin A Level courses at CANDI in September 2024 had the chance to explore the centre and gain experience of college life.

The event provided the incoming cohort of students with an informative and valuable opportunity, offering them the chance to familiarise themselves with the college setting and get a taste of what A Level studies involve.

Dominic Eady, Deputy Head of the Sixth Form College at CANDI said: “It’s about giving them the experience of what it’s like to think like an A Level student, to create like an A Level student and to engage in discussion and debate, like an A Level student.”

During the event, one of the CANDI student ambassadors reflected on their own experience of attending a similar taster event at CANDI prior to beginning their studies. They said: “I think days like these are really helpful because they help you make friends and see what subjects you’re going to do before you actually pick them. When I was in Year 11, I came to one of these and I made some friends. It made induction day much easier because I had more people to talk to and it was less scary.”
