As part of their Careers provision, Year 12 travelled to the Etihad Stadium in Manchester to attend the UK University Search event. More than 60 universities attended and students were encouraged to speak to representatives from as many different ones as possible to find out about courses, entry requirements and the universities themselves. This year there was a variety of companies including IBM and Keir who offer Higher and Degree Level Apprenticeships in the North West. Students had the opportunity to discuss apprenticeships and work experience and they also attended seminars about Oxbridge Applications, UCAS Personal Statements and Russell Group Universities.
It was an inspiring and informative day for the students and will help them to make the all – important decisions for their futures.
