The session was held where we interacted with the host school’s form two, three and four students providing advice and answering any of the questions they had to facilitate a deeper and well-rounded appreciation of the courses they were interested in pursuing and optimal subject selection as the form twos prepare to do so at the end of the school term.
In the afternoon, we provided interactive Q&A answering questions posed to us by the students on the placement service, its functions, outlining the common mistakes that arise during application and the ways to avoid them to maximise the chances of placement in the courses the students would prefer.
The fair allowed us to reach form two students who were about to select subjects; a key step in their journey to college admission and their dream careers. The impact of the talk will be significant to them, increasing their options and providing information for them to base their decisions on.
We continue to provide a resource for students, teachers and parents to tap; through information delivered in this fair and the material provided to the stakeholders, we provided a good and sustainable base to link them to information relevant to them and advice on how to maximise their utility to our services.
The Placement Service is developing a respected role within the local community; our connections with various stakeholders of the schools in the community are developing and getting much stronger.
