Over the last week, a number of Sixth Form Students have visited a range of Universities to see what they can offer students post 18. Yesterday a group of Year 12 students, accompanied by Mr Nugent and Mr Ward, visited Cardiff University as part of their open day. Students had the opportunity to ask questions and attend seminars to get a feel for what life is like while attending university. As well as this visit, Harvey A visited Birmingham City University over the weekend to gain a greater insight into their Music Technology & Music Production Courses which he hopes to study at University.
University is not the only pathway for students post 18, which is why at the Bewdley Sixth Form we encourage all of our students to explore and find the best option for them beyond Sixth Form. Last week, Will W spent 4 days exploring a career as a veterinarian as he shadowed a vet as part of Veterinary Medicine. Within his first 20 minutes of placement, Will helped deliver 4 lambs at a farm. Following a successful placement, Will has now organised further experience at a veterinary practice, as well as working at a dairy farm for the Easter and Summer holidays.
