It is so good to be able to host trips again and this week our Year 12 students had the opportunity to attend the UCAS Higher Education Exhibition at Detling Showground. This event was part of our CEIAG (Careers Education, Information, Advice and Guidance) programme for Sixth Formers which aims to open up their thinking to the opportunities that exist through going to University.
Over 130 exhibitors were at the event offering information and ‘hands on’ experiences. There were Live Lounge talks on ‘How to research what is right for you’ and ‘Secrets to a powerful Personal Statement’ along with live subject talks on studying ‘Biological Science and Veterinary Medicine’ and ‘Careers in Sport’ to name a few. The students who attended found the visit very useful and came away with new ideas and further courses to explore.
Many other interactions (including virtual events) to help Sixth Form students research their post-18 journey are regularly placed on their Unifrog account and also shared via the weekly student newsletter.
The next CEIAG event coming up this term is the ‘Believe and Achieve Conference’ for our Law and Sociology students at the University of Kent next week.
