From Monday 22 June to Friday 26 June, our students had the opportunity to take part in various progression activities, for the first time virtually. Progression options ranged from employment to apprenticeships as well as further and higher education.
RuTC’s careers team informed our students about a range of events, hosted by the University of Kent, Royal Holloway, University of Roehampton, University of the Arts London, St Mary’s University, University of West London, University of Birmingham, The University of Law, University of Northampton and Newcastle University. The virtual events included webinars, open days, Q&A sessions and taster days.
In addition, our careers team provided students with the opportunity to attend virtual events and access information from organisations, such as NHS, Barclays, PWC, British Airways and Citizens Advice Richmond and the path to continue their studies with an apprenticeship at RuTC was highlighted as well.
RuTC students commented that they found the sessions insightful and extremely useful and would highly recommend for other students to take the opportunity to attend the sessions.
Olivia Gibney, RuTC Careers Support and Liaison Officer, said, “Students really liked how the virtual activities helped them to get more information about their progression options, with Level 3 students stating how the bespoke webinars given by universities and Citizens Advice really helped them to feel less stressed about their decisions and getting started on their applications. The virtual sessions held by universities and employers were extremely well done and a great way to be able to deliver our annual progression week. A thanks also to the student services team and tutors who ensured that event ran smoothly.”
