The University Roadshow visits GHS Year 13 Students

The University Roadshow visited our Year 13 students today to showcase up to date information about the wide variety of third level opportunities available to them.

It provided useful information for all students intending to apply to universities in: England, Scotland, Wales, the Republic of Ireland and Europe.  This was an opportunity for our students to speak to and gather information from representatives from the 9 Universities that attended. 

After a short 20 minute presentation to the students covering all aspects of applying to university which covered the application system UCAS, students then had the opportunity to go around each of the university stands and speak to the exhibiters present about their course of interest.

Speedy careers event for Year 12

Pupils engaged in lively discussion with Year 12, 13 and 14 pupils in the style of ‘speed dating’, moving from subject to subject to get a holistic feel to picking subjects for GCSE. Pupils were then given case study cards promoting various career paths that certain subjects will lead to. In addition, the case study cards highlighted labour market information along with Salary/Working conditions etc.


Pupils were able to recognise their employability skills and transfer them into making a suitable choice at GCSE relating to their desired career path.

Pupils left armed with information under the CEAIG Framework in order to build a portfolio of work related skills for life.
