The last few months have been particularly challenging for Years 11 and 13 students due to the initial uncertainty around their exams, the grading and ranking process of students within subjects in school, the unknown effect of national statistical standardisation on those submitted grades, what any resit opportunities may be available, as well as course navigating to the next stage and progression for everyone.
Here are updates on specific topics that are pertinent to Year 11 and 13 students and the coming months and weeks. There are events and dates, practical arrangements for results day and also some information on the Autumn exam series, amongst other things:
We have been asked by the Local Enterprise Partnership, Cumbria LEP, to make all students aware of an upcoming online event they have organised on behalf of local employers and the flyer for this accompanies this Newsletter. There is a local virtual careers event taking place on Tuesday, 7 July to support young people called “Looking Forward to Our Future”, which is an online event hosted by some of our key local partners (Cumbria Careers Hub, Inspira, Hello Future and Cumbria Centre for Leadership Performance).
The event will run from 10.00am until 3.00pm and will cover a wide range of topics including:
- How to sell your best self in applications, CVs and interviews.
- What local employers really look for when they’re looking to employ people.
- Coping with changes and keeping yourself positive.
Young people can register to attend or ask a question here: https://learnliveuk.com/looking-forward-to-our-future/. It’s a great opportunity to be inspired, be prepared and get all those questions answered! All videos are pre-recorded and the chats are moderated to ensure compliance with safeguarding requirements.
