1. I am thinking about going to university and the visit has helped me. Leeds Met is one of the unis I am considering applying to and the course I want to do is on the same campus that we were at today. I think the timing is right for Y11 as it can help in A-Level choices.
Going to Teesside was something that helped me choose to do ICT as a fourth A-Level.
2. ICT will always be a helpful addition to any career as technologies are always changing and ICT is used in almost every job you apply for.
3. I am not considering taking ICT as a degree but the visit has helped me learn more about the university, what is it like and what facilities they have for the students to use.
4. I think that the talks given were useful as they did focus on the course in ICT but also some of the information could apply to all courses.
In addition, I think we all realise the importance of increasing your skills for job applications and taking advantage of opportunites, so there is an equal split between girls and boys.
…thank you Hannah for a thoughtful and considered response. – Mr S
