Are you interested in a career in Journalism?

News Associates are running a series of free, hands-on workshops in their Manchester office in December (Saturday 12th and Monday 21st). It would be an excellent opportunity for students to get some experience on their CVs and UCAS forms.

The sessions are very practical and great fun, and provide a chance to sample life as a working multimedia journalist including:

  • – A breaking news exercise where they simulate a newsroom and get you to produce a mock article for the BBC website.
  • – A broadcast session where you get to present a news bulletin to camera.

For further details, please email or see Mrs Gillibrand gillibrand@aggs.trafford.sch.uk

INFORMATION FOR ADMISSIONS IN DENTISTRY

My name is Ankush Vij. I am a former student mouth-clip-art-opened-mouth-with-teeth-Download-Royalty-free-Vector-File-EPS-1403of the boys school. I currently study dentistry at King’s College London and a friend of mine has recently interviewed the head of admissions for the dental institute- it’s the first time he has ever agreed to discuss getting into dental school.
 
The information is contained in the link below and has some very useful information with regards to UKCAT and upcoming interviews with the MMI system.

Would you kindly share this with your students: Dr Lyndon Cabot: Getting into dental school (King’s College London)

FREE CRIMINOLOGY, CRIMINAL LAW, POLICE SERVICE COURSE

 

Criminology

We’re delighted to launch a free, online course that is suitable for students in Year 12 or Year 13, who want to develop their understanding of criminology, criminal law or the police service.

The multi-disciplinary course is led by Dr Matthew Bacon from the University of Sheffield, with contributions from the police service, probation officers, and criminal lawyers. Topics covered will include: crime and criminal justice; policing; victims and victim support; restorative justice; prisons and places of confinement; community sanctions and measures; and desistance. Completing a course, such as this one, provides excellent material and information that students can use in their UCAS personal statement and when they are invited to interviews at university or for work experience placements.

The course is flexible and can fit around other study and work commitments. Students may choose to study only some of the course materials whilst those who complete the whole course (3 hours per week for 7 weeks) can buy a ‘Statement of Participation’.

We welcome your support in sharing information about this course with your students. For more details about the course content and to watch the introductory video, please visit https://www.futurelearn.com/courses/crime-justice-society or download the attached two-page pdf.
