Outreach & Recruitment has designed the VIP Pass program with the goal of attracting students to Bates by giving them first hand exposure to our programs. The VIP Pass is a program that allows prospective high school or adult students to spend half a day “shadowing” a career training program at Bates Technical College.
How it works
- Both prospective high school and adult students have the option to participate.
- Student screening is done by high school or community- based agency career counselors prior to the student arrival on campus.
- The prospective student can choose which program to shadow, according to their career path, strengths, talents, abilities and aptitudes.
- Each visiting student accompanied by a mentor that the instructor has selected.
- Visits are available on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays from 9:30 -11:30 a.m. when classes are in session.
To schedule a visit, contact Patricia Chase at 253.680.7302.
