Spring Term Update


Welcome to the third edition of the UHS Careers Newsletter. Since our last publication, it has been a busy time at UHS. We have celebrated National Apprenticeship Week (February) and National Careers Week (March). During both weeks, students from Years 7-13 completed a range of careers related activities and attended virtual talks hosted by employers from industry sectors such as the Armed Forces, STEM, Professional Services, Technology and the Public Sector. 

Year 11 and Year 12 have also been applying for Easter and Summer virtual work experience placements with work experience in its traditional sense being put on hold. Several of our students have been successful in obtaining placements with Ofcom, Thames Link, Johnson Matthey and many more. Virtual work experience has many benefits providing young people with the opportunity to gain experience in the workplace, develop their skills, boost their employability, and explore new industries and job roles.

We have been excited to launch our new T Level in Laboratory Science this year and held an Information Evening in March (more info on this here).

Finally, January seen the launch of the new Careers Hub ( It contains the A-Z of careers information from; employer and labour market information, careers in the curriculum, work experience, post-18 destination data and a parent/career zone. Work on the hub will be ongoing, therefore, do check back every now and then for new and exciting content.

Thank you and we hope you enjoy!
