Progression fair 2014
As many of you know, a progression took place for our very own BSix students on Friday 7th March. This once in a year event aims to raise aspirations by giving BSix students a chance to explore their options in a wide range of universities and investigate opportunities in the world of work and higher education. This is the main purpose of this major event which took place in the sports hall. A wide range of universities were present such as London South Bank, University of York, Queen Mary University, Oxford University and many more. This gave the students an opportunity to think more about their options. Not only were there universities present in this event, but also jobs, training, work experience and volunteering opportunities including the metropolitan police. So students were also able to apply for different volunteering opportunities and jobs. The speaker of Hackney, Michael Desmond, also attended the event.
We spoke to a few of the students in the college and we ask for their feedback on the progression fair they attended . Muktadir Ahmed, who is currently studying IGCSE’s and A-levels said ‘Progression fair was amazingly helpful for me, as i am a student from abroad i came to know a lot of things about different universities and different things about further education’. This event is especially made for students who are looking for a full time career and are aiming to finish college and move on to an amazing university which offers their course. Year 2 student, Habibullah Salimee , who studies BTEC Level 3 in Applied Science said ‘It was great and I had a good time there, getting to know different universities, finding information about different universities and what courses they offer’. As you can see the progression fair was a success and benefited people in many ways. We hope it will have the same impact on students for the years to come. To students who attended this fair we wish you all the best and good luck with your exams.
