Nicola Buckley, Head of Public Engagement at the University of Cambridge, will be talking to students and parents about the vast array of jobs available at the University and the qualities the University looks for in job applicants. Coffee and pastries will be served from 0800 and the presentation will start at 0815; there will be opportunities to ask questions and the session should finish by 0845, allowing parents to attend Progress Consultations if necessary. This is a great chance to find out more about the University so we really hope you can attend. The session will be repeated at Coleridge later in the term.

Year 10 students on work experience in May will receive instructions in their Core Humanities lessons next week about confirming their placements with their employers. These instructions will include a job description and a contract.
