This is an invitation to the Sixth Form Induction Week that will run from Tuesday June 26th to Thursday June 28th 2018.
The induction will provide you with all the information you need to prepare you for your move from GCSE to becoming a Weavers Sixth Form student. Furthermore, the week is structured to enable students to access information and guidance that will help you make the most informed choices possible. Because the shift from Year 11 to Sixth Form is so great and your experience will be so different, attendance to the induction is strongly advised for all prospective Year 12 students.
The full induction programme will run as follows:
Tuesday 26 June:
This will be an opportunity to experience A-level lessons in your chosen option choices. You may also wish to try lessons you have an interest in studying but did not select as an option to help clarify your choices. You may wish to review your choices after these sessions, but please do this in discussion with myself to ensure compatibility
Wednesday 27 June:
This day will cover what the benefits of doing A-levels will be for you in more detail. A strong information, advice and guidance (IAG) focus on Tuesday’s sessions to help further guide students towards their potential routes and options both within and beyond Sixth Form as you make the step up to being a successful Sixth Form student. There will be sessions on study skills, future career paths, wellbeing and team-building activities amongst other things.
Thursday 28 June:
Today will include sessions from former students and external speakers on their experience of sixth form, university, apprenticeships and where these can take you. We will be taking a small group of students to the induction of the CET public speaking and essay writing competition, which is an excellent chance to participate in the top competition available across the trust to our sixth form students. We will also take students to the University of Bedford UCAS fair where a large number of universities from across the country will be represented showing what they have to offer at post-18.
Each day will commence at 8.45 am in M14. As a Sixth Form student you will be expected to dress in smart office wear for all days apart from Thursday’s university visit .
