Apprenticeship or University?

On Tuesday 12th June, Year 12 spent the morning considering their post-18 options as part of their 'Next Steps' PSHCE module.

Mr Wilkins kicked off proceedings by presenting the apprenticeship route, with a focus on the key benefits of higher and degree apprenticeships and some of the companies offering them. A panel discussion followed with three Herschel alumni who had completed apprenticeships - Matt Halls, now working for Cisco; Natalie Morrison from GSK and Arti Kalia from British Airways.

A representative from the University of Surrey then took over to introduce university and the UCAS process with the help of another Herschel former student, Liam Addley, now studying at the University of Surrey.
