UCAS & Careers

Here at The Maynard, we firmly believe that it is our duty to provide an effective careers education to prepare our students for working life and a future beyond the school gates.

Through the provision of a planned and progressive programme of careers from the Upper 3 (Year 7) right through to the Upper Sixth (Year 13), we aim to give our students the best chance of making aspirational decisions for their future.

The careers programme includes opportunities to listen to visiting Careers speakers, apprentices, work experience and advice on decision making. By the Sixth Form, when identifying potential subjects to study at university becomes a priority, a dedicated Tutor Team is there to support the process by arranging visiting speakers, conducting mock interviews and helping with the whole application process. We understand that planning a life beyond school can be a daunting process and we will guide each student through every step of the way!

Thinking about engineering but not sure what it involves?

The Smallpeice Trust will be running residential courses during 2019/20.  These new courses will provide a great opportunity to learn about engineering subjects and also give students a taster of life on campus at a UK university. Courses include space Science and engineering and girls into electronics. Smartphones, robots, virtual reality systems are just a few examples of recent innovations that are changing our lives and have one important thing in common – they depend on electronics.  Electronic engineers work creatively to conceive concepts, work those concepts into practical solutions, design the circuits and write the embedded software code that make the technology work. Why not find out more about what is on offer.

Interested? See the link to these courses and others, in the Courses and Work Experience section.
