Futures UTCSTUDENTS at Sir Charles Kao UTC planned for their future on Friday 1st July 2016, as they celebrated futures day.

During the event, students took part in a number of short workshops with a variety of organisations, each focussing on increasing the employability skills of students and their awareness of their future options. These included the Institute of Physics, Inspiring the Future, Public Health England and Alltogether.

After this, students had their chance to question employees of a number of organisations. Along with the companies above, students also had the chance to speak to representatives from Raytheon, IT Vet and Harlow Council.

To end the event, students participated in a question and answer session from Robert Halfon MP. Robert discussed the town’s future developments, including the Harlow Enterprise Zone and Public Health England, linking the unique position of students at Sir Charles Kao UTC to thousands of new jobs these developments will bring to the town.

Year 10 student Joshua who participated in the day said:

“I quite enjoyed the day as it gave me a good insight into the job branches I could follow. I particularly enjoyed learning about what employees do and the tasks they complete every day.”

Principal Mike McKeaveney said:

“At Sir Charles Kao UTC, we pride ourselves in employer links, ensuring our students are prepared for their futures in the working world and life in modern Britain.

The confidence and knowledge displayed by our students at this event shows clearly that our students are already on track with planning their future through the unique partnerships we have with local and national employers.

Thank you to all the volunteers who participated in the day and helped make it a huge success.”
