Year 13 Community Day November 2014
The Year 13 Community day this November has a progression focus. The students will be working in one of three key areas:
- Our UCAS cohort will be focusing on the completion of their UCAS applications. On this day they will receive bespoke advice from both their tutor and from the UCAS Sixth form team, in order to meet our in-house deadline of the 28th of November. Those students that have successfully completed their applications and many of whom have all their offers back will be working closely with their peers, as UCAS mentors. The Oxbridge applicants will be preparing for their interviews with a targeted session on the interview process and they will even be doing a session on logical, in our new 'thinking aloud' series, to foster critical thought and reflection.
- Our world of work students will be in workshops with our Prospects adviser, Beatrice Joseph. They will be honing their CVs and making targeted apprenticeship applications. They will also be exploring related work experience opportunities, as well as other gap year possibilities.
- Our art college applicants will be working on their portfolios and applications with the art college co-ordinator, Sam Kiff and a visiting artist. There will also be an admissions tutor from UAL who will be doing a workshop with the students to continue to craft their applications and portfolios ready to apply to art colleges.
