This term our Year 12 students have completed work experience placements across a range of industries from engineering and health sciences.

Work experience enables students to develop a range of key employability skills including communication, teamwork and managerial skills. This valuable experience can also be utlised as supportive evidence for UCAS applications.

Our student Principal, Joshua Glicklich, secured a unique work experience opportunity to shadow Prof. George Holmes DL, who is the Vice-Chancellor of the University of Bolton.

In his first week, Joshua was involved in many meetings with the academic team in the University and learnt about the management of student data and induction. He then presented to the entire university staff about the importance of work experience. Joshua was also involved in looking at student data management and how this was done when the new students arrive in September.

“This experience has given me a sense of direction and further strengthened my existing ambitions to have a career in academia. I have really enjoyed gaining a greater understanding of the University and its Teaching Intensive – Researched Informed philosophy.” – Joshua Glicklich
