Year 13 Important Dates - UCAS Deadline and Apprenticeship Workshops
06 Nov 2017
As this important year progresses, we strive to provide all students with as many opportunities as possible to find the right path for them post Sixth Form. I would like to share the following information with you regarding some upcoming dates and opportunities.
For a number of students, this path will be applying for universities and after the successful Post Sixth Form Preparation Day last June, this process should be well underway. A number of students have already submitted their applications but for those who still have not done so, the deadline for these applications is Wednesday 6 December 2017. Students have all been provided with resources to complete their application and write a personal statement but they are more than welcome to ask for further support and advice regarding this from a member of the Sixth Form Team. There will also be an assembly later this term regarding student finance and next term an information evening for parents. Details will follow in due course.
For those who are seeking employment or an apprenticeship after Sixth Form, students have been advised that we have an external visitor coming to school on Wednesday morning this week (8th November) from the LEBC (Leicestershire Education Business Group). The aim of this session (8.45am-10.05am) is to deliver a workshop on CV writing and apprenticeship opportunities. If students are interested in attending this session, please advise a member of the Sixth Form Team if they have not done so already.
Next term, on Monday 29 January, there will be an additional apprenticeship workshop, which will offer a full presentation on apprenticeships and what to expect followed by full guidance on how to build a profile, search for opportunities and apply for roles using the National Apprenticeship Service website. More information regarding this will be shared with students in due course.
If you have any queries regarding any of these opportunities, please contact the Sixth Form Team.
