Careers event helps students plan their next steps
On Friday 1 July, Year 12 students spent the day planning their next move after completing their studies at UTC Reading.
The day started with talks from University of Reading, Whatuni, and an introduction to the apprenticeship application process by Mike Halliday, the UTC’s business relations manager.
Students then worked through a number of research activities before drafting their personal statements and CVs ready for their final year and the first UCAS applications deadline of 15 October 2016.
Whatuni ran workshops throughout the day to help students identify university courses most suited to their aspirations and current studies.
The day finished with mock interviews, in which students interviewed one other and gave constructive feedback.
The day was a great success for all concerned.
