RBS Girls Mentoring Scheme lunch for Year 13 – future focussed.

As part of our ongoing relationship with RBS and to celebrate International Women’s Day, today saw the launch of a Y13 Girls Mentoring scheme with 7 volunteers from RBS Finance. The aim of the scheme is to support our Y13’s in the choices they are currently making about their future careers, with the support and experience that the business volunteers from RBS. This project will run for the next there months for Year 13, with the aim of then switching our focus to the ‘new’ Year 13 in September.

The girls will be able to gain advice regarding possible career options, support for applications they are making and generally provide a business point of contact outside of the school environment. We are really excited by this opportunity and look forward to working with RBS over the coming months.

Year 13 Destinations

This is the time of year when our Year 13 students are not only faced with exam and coursework deadlines but are also looking at their ‘Life after Logic’. Thanks to the support of our transition team, our business partners and a number of local university and apprenticeship ambassadors, we are in a really positive position with the potential destinations of our Y13 students. Current news on our 51 students includes:

  • 27 confirmed applications for Universities including Edinburgh, Nottingham, Brunel, Roehampton, Goldsmiths, Royal Holloway and many more.
  • Malkit Kapoor is through to the penultimate stage for a degree apprenticeship with top London based financial institute JP Morgan.
  • 4 students (Callum, Tom, Eric and Lui)  have been offered IT apprenticeship roles with Gaia Technologies.
  • Josh Kerby has been offered employment by international marketing and branding company Phar Partnerships. This follows on from a successful work experience he undertook in Year 12.
  • Georgia Mackey is about to attend the next recruitment stage of a HR apprenticeship with BP.
  • 3 students (Moesha, Isobel and Darya have been offered employment with local companies, following on from work placements they undertook in Year 12.

For many students, the apprenticeship process is now in full swing and we are looking forward to hearing the stories of our students success in the coming months. At Logic, our aim is that all of our Y13 students will be employed, starting an apprenticeship or at University come September! #noneets
