Year 8 receive careers advice

Yr 8 students take part in a GCSE Options/Widening Participation External Workshop.

As part of MA’s Information, Advice and Guidance programme, year 8 students have taken part in an important ‘Widening Participation’ Steps to Success event. The company, based at the University of Hull came to MA to do a workshop on Widening Participation and GCSE options. The programme is designed to raise aspirations and motivate all students to achieve the highest level they can in education and training. It also examines the importance of GCSE choices, Post 16 options, Post 18 options and staying on in education until 18.

Year 8 students will be making their first GCSE option choice later this Spring, so this was an exciting opportunity to prepare them for making some early informed career based decisions.
