Sixth Form Career Ready Graduation

News ‐ 29 Jan 2020

Year 13 students who have completed the Career Ready programme celebrated their success on Wednesday evening in a graduation ceremony.

Open to all our Sixth Form students, the programme is a proven, high-impact, no-cost way of ensuring that your young people have additional support in making informed decisions about their future education and career. It comprises 4 elements:

  • Masterclasses
  • 2 week internship
  • Mentoring with professional volunteers
  • Work place visits

Over the course of the programme, students, with their mentors, reflect on their progress and cover topics such as:

  • Communications & Networking
  • Organisational Skills
  • Managing Myself
  • Problem Solving & Analysis

The Career Ready Graduation 2020 was an uplifting event. The students were really looking forward to it and participated brilliantly. Ian Shanahan, our former LAB chair delivered a master class on 'Brand You' which focused on how our graduates need to develop their own career brand and how significant this is for their future success.

Students then watched a short video in which their colleagues spoke about how the Career Ready programme has impacted them in numerous ways, and passing on somee valuable advice to future participants.

The evening ended with an award ceremony. There were three categories up for grabs and they were: 'Student of the Year', which went to Fahima Akhter, 'Mentee of the Year' awarded to Ibrahim Takolia and 'Most hard-working student' Rasheed Olonade.

Mr Hussain would like to congratulate all the students and thank them for their hard work and enthusiasm.
