Headstart Programme

What is Headstart? 

Headstart is a charitable trust providing hands-on STEM activities and engineering taster courses to encourage young people into technology-based careers.  Taking place at some of the top universities, our courses are perfect for Year 12 students to find out about the exciting career opportunities a degree course might lead to.  Our broad-based engineering courses give a flavour of many engineering disciplines and our focus courses provide an insight into highly specialised fields.  You can find out more here.  Stay up to date by joining our Headstart EDT Facebook group and follow us on – Twitter @TheEDTUK

 

Year 11 Careers Morning


The purpose of the morning is to get Y11 to think about their Post 16 options and to encourage them to think more widely about all of the options and opportunities available to them and to make a better informed decision about their future.

Y11 heard from a range of speakers who explained about the differences between 6th forms and colleges, college life and choices, the benefits of higher education, higher/degree apprenticeships and A-Level choices and also a specific talk at lunchtime about “Why choose medicine?”. We would like to thank Manchester College, Trafford Connexions, The Growth Company and The University of Manchester for coming into school to deliver the presentations.  Year 11 also heard from some of our Y12 students about their particular experiences of choosing A-Level options and how they found the transition to 6th form.
