Year 12 Progression Week 2022

Every year, we offer our Year 12 Cowley Sixth Form College students a Progression Week, a week-long event to help them think about what they’d like to do after sixth form college.

Progression Week takes the form of:

  • University Day – featuring a careers fair (market place style) with universities from around the UK, university-based talks and sessions as well as a presentation around UCAS applications.
  • Apprenticeship and Employers Day – featuring a careers fair (market place style) of apprenticeship providers and employers from a wide range of different industries plus talks and sessions about apprenticeships and industry-based topics.
  • Mock Interview Day – each student sits a mock interview with a professional to help them prepare for university or employment interviews.
  • Work Experience – each student partakes in a work experience placement for three days (students in some courses will do more than three days) to gain valuable experience in a workplace.
