KS5 students take part in final UTC Pipeline Programme session of the academic year
On Friday 29 March, KS5 students attended their final UTC Pipeline Programme day of the academic year.
Since September, students in Year 12 and 13 have teamed up with their chosen industry expert for four sessions across the year, to help develop the skills that are needed in the workplace.
The programme is designed to develop a talent pipeline, as students and employers work together on employability skills workshops, technical briefings and work placements.
For their final session of the year, our employer partners each worked with their groups on a wide range of innovative and engaging activities, before working through all of the valuable lessons taught since the start of the year.
The final pipeline day saw all-day sessions from: Salesforce, Fujitsu, NTT Security, John Lewis, Airbyte, Network Rail, KBR, KBR Government, Peter Brett Associates (PBA), SSE, Equinix, Thames Water, ASK Apprenticeships, Microsoft and AWE.
Head of Employer Engagement Strategy, Mike Halliday, said: “The Pipeline has enabled the UTC to build strong relationships with employers while addressing their recruitment challenges, but more importantly, to provide students with the skills they need to prepare them for their next career move following their time at the UTC. With more partners signed up for the next year, we are offering a unique learning journey that delivers a great experience for our students”.
Thank you to our UTC Pipeline partners for their commitment to our students and for continuing to run such engaging, invaluable sessions.
