University and Apprenticeship Fair 2018
On Friday 28th September, Year 12 and Year 13 students from Coombe Sixth Form visited the University and Apprenticeship Fair.
Students made their way across London to the Emirates stadium in north London. The reason: the University and Apprenticeship Fair 2018, held in four exhibition rooms overlooking the famous pitch.
A huge range of universities were present with admission staff and student ambassadors ready to talk to students and enable them to make informed decision about degree courses. There were also major employers in attendance such as Goldman Sachs, TFL, IBM and Eversheds, a global legal practice - these companies were all keen to let young people know about the highly sought after apprenticeship schemes they run for school leavers and to advise on ways students could make themselves a strong applicant.
This was perfect timing for Year 13 students who are in the process of completing UCAS applications and writing a personal statement and for those who are looking for an alternative to university. It also gave Year 12 students a chance to start exploring all the exciting pathways which are possible for them.
