Year 12 Futures Week - Monday 17th June - Friday 21st June
Students from all the TENC schools have spent this week thinking about their futures. To start the week and give students a real insight into the world of work, all were given the opportunity of up to three days’ work placement in a relevant and meaningful context. Students found some amazing placements and we look forward to hearing all about their experiences.
On Thursday, we visited the Universities Conference at Bedford University which provided a unique opportunity for them– and anyone supporting them – to explore the wide range of options available after school, all in one setting. Whether they were interested in applying to university or looking at alternative pathways, they all found something that interested them.
The week culminated in the TENC Futures’ Conference where students were treated to an amazing range of speakers from a whole range of different career pathways. What an amazing bunch of inspirational people! Our keynote speaker was Kevin Rogers from Wilson Browne Solicitors. He gave us an insightful look at his experience in studying law and becoming a solicitor, not that it was an easy journey!
We also heard from people who have forged paths into teaching, medicine, sport’s journalism, the Army, business ownership, marketing, and the civil service. All our guests are fresh out of education and they have had really different and exciting routes into their career paths.
We hope our students are equally inspired by the event which illustrates that anything can be achieved when you make a choice to take a chance to change your life.
