OVER 100 YEAR 12 STUDENTS HEAD TO UCAS EXHIBITION
We were delighted to be able to take over 100 Year 12 students to the recent Tees Valley UCAS Exhibition, hosted at Teesside University. Students were able to meet representatives from many universities and training providers from all over the UK, to talk about course options, entry requirements and application processes, as well as the fantastic facilities and extra-curricular activities on offer. Students also had the chance to attend seminars on student finance, apprenticeships, UCAS personal statements and the application process.
There were also a number of employers available to chat to, including The Dyson Institute, whom some students talked to about engineering Apprenticeships.
Ms Mannion. Careers Leader commented: “After two years of careers’ research being predominantly online, it was great to be back at UCAS events in person, and to give our students the opportunity to engage with higher education providers face-to-face again. Our students enjoyed the day and two of the universities took the time to say how much they had enjoyed talking to the Richmond Sixth Form students (who were easily identified with their lanyards) and how well-mannered they were. Students returned to college feeling inspired, and bringing lots of prospectuses for courses they are interested in.”
Thanks to transport funding from Richmond School Trustees, we were able to offer this opportunity to all of our Year 12 students.
