Year 13 Enrichment Event 2022
Students from Year 13 had the opportunity to take part in a two-day enrichment event to help prepare them for their next steps.
Students listened to guest speakers from a variety of universities. The University of East Anglia discussed the UCAS journey and preparing for Higher Education. The University of Essex gave the students an informative session on writing personal statements, and we were delighted to welcome back our former Head Girl, Laura Regan, to give the students a careers talk from her time at Imperial College London.
Students also had the opportunity to take part in two workshops run by Amazing Apprenticeships. The first was a recruitment and application workshop to help students understand the process of searching and applying for an apprenticeship.
The second workshop was a mock assessment centre. The students were given a group task to complete for which they received helpful advice and guidance about how assessment centres work and what employers are looking for.
Students also took part in a valuable financial workshop giving them lots to think about for the future. It was a great opportunity to really think about their future career path and give them the tools needed to help them make that next step in the educational and career journey.
