Next at 11:00 am during PSHE we ran an event called ‘My Career Story’. Current apprentices and construction workers were on site to support students for their next steps beyond school. We were happy to welcome ex-student Ben Harris who was one of the presenters and was keen to share the benefits that he accrued from studying at the UTC
Throughout the afternoon we had over 20 employers and colleges on site supporting our ‘Apprenticeship and Careers Fair’.
“It was fantastic to speak to a number of students who have a drive to be a part of the construction industry and I will do my upmost to support them in their journey as there were some truly inspiring students.” Ashley Clark, Resourcing Manager, Galliford Try Partnerships
“I found several candidates that I want my senior management team to meet formally & am really excited about them.” Cliff Shepherd, Senior Project Engineer, RMD Kwikform
“My team have arrived at work today and reported how impressed they were with the event, but most importantly with the conduct and calibre of your students – a real credit to you.” Jo Baugh, Sales Manager – Apprenticeships, City of Wolverhampton College
Well there you go. I’m sure you will agree that ‘A day in the life of the UTC’ demonstrates that we really are ‘a school with a difference’. A massive thank-you to our highly skilled and dedicated staff who helped arrange these inspiring activities.
