Careers and Employer Engagement – another busy term planned for Logic students.
It promises to be another busy term for Logic students, particularly around Employer Engagement and Careers.
Prior to Christmas, Year 10 students had the launch of their Work Experience, which will take place in July 2019. Students are beginning to look at possible placements linked to their career aspirations and are devising CV’s and application letters to send to companies. Later this term, Year 10 will also participate in a Speed Networking Event with a variety of local providers, universities and employers and also attend a Taster Day at St Mary’s University to look at University life.
Students participated in an individual transition interview prior to Christmas and met with a member of staff to discuss potential Post 16 options. This included the option of the TPET 6th Form but also looked at other opportunities including apprenticeships, college courses and other providers. Later this term, Year 11 will also participate in a Speed Networking Event with a variety of local providers, universities and employers to inform them of the potential careers opportunities open to them later on. A number of students will also be visiting Zone In, a Hounslow council event that brings together employers, apprenticeships providers, careers advisors and 6th Form colleges to meet with students.
Our EE programme continues each Wednesday with students following specialist pathways in Network Computing; Creative Media; Business and Events, AAT Accountancy and Finance; and EPQ for UCAS. Events this term include visits to UCFB at Wembley and Twickenham Stadium to look at Business, Hospitality and Event management; a live radio broadcast with Insanity radio at Royal Holloway University; EPQ research and training days at Middlesex University, our Career Ready Mentor Launch with business partners and a Problem Solving and Coding day with Accenture. Business and Events students are also preparing for a 6 week work experience placement which will take place every Wednesday from February half term to Easter.
A big term for Year 13 with major BTEC exams but also a final push for UCAS applications with the deadline less than 2 weeks away! A number of students are continuing to work with Outsource T&D and completing applications for apprenticeships. As part of this, we are also running ‘small group’ training for students who need to focus on a particular aspect of their application to improve. For example, students might be practicing their written application, their phone interview, working in groups to complete tasks or their face to face interview skills. These have been identified as part of their initial screening centre with Outsource.
As we always say at Logic, our role is to provide students with all of the relevant and key information needed to make informed choices about their future!
