Year 10 work experience

So far only about 50 students on each campus have found a placement. Are you one of those? If not, this is another call to ‘get out there’ and actively seek a placement over this weekend. Look further afield, network through friends, family and neighbours. Think retail, garden centres, accountants, offices, garages where you have your family car serviced….. Remember to ask to speak to someone who is in charge of Work Experience so that you get proper attention. Good luck!

Careers in Investments event for sixth form students on 11th December

The event will be held at the offices of State Street in Canary Wharf, and will focus on developing a career in the investment sector.  The event will provide students with the opportunity to meet employers from a range of investment firms and to hear about their entry level programmes and progression routes within the industry. I have attached a programme for your information.

There are only 40 spaces available for students at this event.  If you would like to reserve five places for your students, please let me know as soon as possible and I will allocate these to you. Places will be distributed on a first come first served basis.  Students will need to be predicted to achieve 280 UCAS points or more and be prepared to have professional conversations with employers, as the focus of this event is on networking and career development.

If this is of interest to you, could you ask students who wish to attend to fill out the attached response form and email these back to me. As with all our events, attendance is free of charge.

If you have any questions or require further clarification about this event, please do not hesitate to Kieran Rigney, 020 7367 9569
