    On the morning of 30th March,  a group of Year 12 & Year 13 students from TENC attended the Opportunities in the NHS conference  in Kettering. The  Chief Executive of Northamptonshire NHFT introduced a series of workshops targeting how to get into careers in the NHS, specifically via the apprenticeship route. Students were shown different job roles in the NHS and speakers talked about their personal career journeys. Current apprentices were available to receive questions and students were given practical help to set up their NHS jobs account on www.jobs.nhs.uk

  • Pembroke College - Cambridge University

    Published 22/03/17

    On Thursday March 16th, a select group of Year 12 TENC students visited  Pembroke College, Cambridge to find out more about the university, the college itself and the application process.  It was an excellent day  and a privilege to witness our students fully engaged in everything, asking challenging questions and taking an active role  in the sessions.

       

     

    One of the students wrote:

     

    “It was a brilliant opportunity for us to see one of the best universities in the UK,  as well as find out more about life at university. After a short introduction to the University itself, we were given a tour of the College grounds and an insight into student life. Before heading to the museum of archaeology and anthropology, we were treated to lunch in their hall along with the other students. The museum was a fabulous addition to the trip as we got to learn some things we didn't know, for example, Cambridge University has 8 potatoes that are 9,500 years old. The trip was a great experience that we all enjoyed and the knowledge we learnt will hopefully benefit us when it comes to applying to University”

  • Careers in The NHS Day at Leicester Kube

    Published 15/03/17

    On Wednesday March 8th a group of Yr 12/13 students attended the NHS careers information day in Leicester. Most of the students were studying science or health and care related subjects and were specifically interested in progressing to NHS related training or employment after leaving the sixth form.

    There was a really good coverage of most health related jobs and students were able to engage in various interactive activities that were linked to different areas of the health service.  A life- like ultra sound simulator allowed students to carry out a pregnancy scan which they could view on a monitor and a “hands on “ heart monitor allowed students to measure each other’s resting heart rate and oxygen saturation levels.  There was a lot of useful advice for those seeking to study medicine, including a full paramedic team.

    “It was a good opportunity to speak to those in the profession and find out more about the health service” Rhea H
