BOOTCAMP 3.0 GEMS CIN JUNE 18TH AND 19TH 2018

Bootcamp 3.0 was held at GEMS CIN on 18th and 19th of June this year.  Over 14 UniConnect partners graced the event and held a series of workshops with topics targeted at making our Students University ready.  The topics included: What is required to become University ready, Building a resume, Independent portfolio building, How to make career decisions and critical thinking skills.  The workshops were small enough hence the students got to be fully engaged with the University reps.  We also held an Unfair on both days in which our students got 1:2:1 time with the University reps.    Parents who visited the Bootcamp also got to meet with the reps from various Universities.

Next year we will have a follow up Unfair at the end of September. The main objectives for these Bootcamp events are:

-Provide year 11 with clear pathway’s to KS5 that best suits them

-Provide year 12’s with opportunities to build their Portfolios and decide which University best suits them

-Scholarship opportunities for GEMS students

-Furnish parents with an understanding of the skills required for their students to become University ready.
