Post 18 Options
Post 18 Options Conference for Year 12
We have had an excellent Post 18 Options conference at the beginning of March. We had speakers from Anglia Ruskin, Lincoln, and Bedford Universities, Plan MY Gap Year, and ex-students, come into the Sixth Form to talk about why go to university, student funding and finances, the student experience and taking a gap year. We also had outside providers come in and run a session on the world of work, with 6 volunteers from local employers. We had a session on apprenticeships run by Thomas Cook and Huntingdon Regional College, and a session specifically on medically related career options. Hopefully students are able now to begin thinking constructively about the possible choices for their next steps. This was followed in the evening by a Parents' Information session explaining the processes of application to and funding for university.
