6th Form Enrichment Hour
Notre Dame Sixth Form introduced the Sixth Form Enrichment Hour in September 2013. This hour facilitates opportunities for our sixth formers to find out more about specific careers by attending talks by local professionals and also provides the opportunity to discover more about university courses from university lecturers.
We have had a wide variety of speakers talking about a wide variety of professions, including “Working for a Global Company” (Chris Paine, Aviva), “Studying in Europe” (Thomas Gidney), “Studying Pharmacy” (Dr Lesley Howell), “Studying Economics” (Dr Joel Clovis), “Careers in Law” (Naomi Newel, Birketts LLP), “Studying Computer Science” (Dr Stephen Laycock), “Studying Law” (Dr Heywood), “Careers in the NHS” (Rachel Glen), “Studying Engineering” (Tim Munday – ex-Notre Dame), “Cerebral Palsy Alive & Kicking” (Joan Latta), “Actuarial Sciences“ (Dr Glover), “Careers in Media” (Nikki Fox), “Careers in NHS”, and “Careers in Journalism” (Rosa McMahon, EDP).
These very well-attended sessions have not only provided extremely insightful in terms of our students being able to find out more about certain career paths but they have also offered our students a wealth of invaluable tips and advice in terms of how to apply for jobs and what employers and university admissions officers (UCAS) are looking for.
