New students get prepared to study at Cambridge Regional College


With Covid-19 sending everyone into lockdown, cutting short the current academic year and preventing post 16 students from attending open events and taster days, the transition from secondary education to further education may be an even greater step for students moving on in September. To lessen the impact during this challenging time, teaching teams at Cambridge Regional College have been working tirelessly to produce bespoke learning resources for learners joining the college in September.

This week, ‘Preparing to Study at CRC’ resource packs across 27 different subject areas are being emailed to all learners that have enrolled for September 2020 to prepare them for the transition. The resource packs will support learners in engaging with college preparation activities that would normally have taken place at taster days and will provide the opportunity for applicants to sample learning activities, linked to knowledge and skills that they will develop on their chosen courses, and scenarios that they may encounter in the world of work enabling them to challenge themselves ahead of the start of their courses.

Director or Curriculum, Dan Burns said, “At CRC we are dedicated to supporting all of our students in their educational journey and we know that in these challenging times the transition from school to college may me more daunting, particularly to those who have not had the opportunity to continue their learning. Therefore, in order to support progression onto our courses and to support with being prepared to study at the college, a range of bespoke resources for each of our subject areas will be available to any student who has applied to study at CRC.”

Any learners that have not received their Preparing to Study at CRC resource packs should email admissions@camre.ac.uk detailing their full name and course choice.
