Mulberry UTC’s ‘Futures Fortnight’ event programme was launched with a fantastic motivational talk delivered by James Ohene-Djan from from Goldsmiths, University of London.
Year 11, 12 and 13 students were inspired when they heard about James’ unconventional route to university and beyond.
‘Futures Fortnight’ ensures that all students are allocated time to focus on their future careers and aspirations. Tutor sessions have included discussions about challenging gender stereotyping in careers and a range of activities to allow students to link their current skills to possible future careers. Some Year 11 students have had one-to-one careers interviews with Debbie Baker from LBTH Young Workpath. Year 13 have been busy finalising their personal statements for their UCAS applications, with the support of their brilliant mentors.
