The first month of the school year is always busy for Year14 pupils and the Careers department and this year has been no different. From University open days to UCAS applications, the pressure is on to identify a pathway for the future and make sure clear goals and targets can be achieved.
On Tuesday 6 September 52 students departed from the front terrace at the Lough Shore site for the first open day visit of the year to the University of Ulster, Jordanstown campus. The aspiring students spent the day investigating their future Higher Educational pathways and as part of the experience were able to attended workshops and lectures.
On Friday 9 September over 100 students then attended the QUB Open Day. following a similar format to the experience delivered by Ulster, this event proved to be another very useful fact finding mission for our aspiring Y14 cohort and for many provided an incentive to put in the necessary effort this year in order to secure a place for September 2017.
On Thursday 15 September over 30 year 13 students departed from the Cooper Crescent to attend the Health Related Fair at the South West College, Omagh. This valuable event allowed the young people the opportunity to talk specialist staff and find out more information about potential career pathways in: Physiotherapy, Radiography, Radiotherapy, Speech and Language Therapy, Occupational Therapy, Orthoptics, Nutrition and Dietetics, Podiatry, Pharmacy and Social work.
