Colas Rail are holding an Open Day on 13th July 2024 to demonstrate the range of dynamic roles, skills and people it takes to run the railway network.

It has been designed to highlight the fantastic opportunities for Women and Girls on the railway and are offering them a chance to come and see what they do within the depot, have a look at the machinery they use, explore the roles that they have, ask any questions and get involved with some appropriate activities. There will also be individuals from our recruitment team available to give talks and information about careers within the industry.

They have current vacancies and future roles as well as apprenticeship and graduate scheme opportunities from engineering to management and everything in between.

Students are welcome to bring parents / carers, friends or family along too.

  Preparing to Work in Health and Social Care
Six of our Year 12 Health & Social Care students have had the wonderful opportunity to spend a week block at work placement this term, gaining fantastic, relevant experience to supplement their A Level studies. 
Organised by Health & Social Care Teacher, Susie Pollard students have been placed in pairs at the Academy For Dementia Research & Education (ADRE).  ADRE is based on the Lutterworth College site and works in partnership with the school to promote life-long learning opportunities for ADRE members and college students.  Ms Pollard has been working hard behind the scenes to support her students with gaining invaluable work experience and also recently arranged for ADRE Director & Project Manager Jane Beaumont to visit Lutterworth College and speak to the Year 12 Health & Social Care students about her work at ADRE.  
We have also had a number of Year 12 students join additional local employers for a week block of work experience, including schools & nurseries.  Work experience looks fantastic on job and university applications and is hugely beneficial in so many ways.  A huge thank you to all the local businesses who have supported with the programme.

The Medic Portal | Student

We are incredibly excited to let you know about our in person and new virtual work experience programme.

We are all aware that getting work experience is a huge challenge for aspiring medics and this has been largely compounded by COVID. We are therefore delighted to have a genuinely brilliant solution. 

We have partnered up with Kissing It Better, a leading charity who have been recognised by NHS England and the BMA. They have recently been featured heavily on the news for their excellent work in supporting older, isolated people in Care Homes. 

Through our joint programme, we will be giving students the opportunity to connect with these people through Zoom coordinated sessions to build up the key skills they will need during their medical training and career, while also importantly supporting a vulnerable demographic. 

Alongside the live Zoom calls, there will be a suite of learning modules to help students get the most out of this unique volunteering opportunity.

We anticipate this programme being taken up by thousands of students globally as we are inundated with requests daily. The programme will be running in different countries, such as Australia, and live Zoom sessions will be taking place to accommodate for global time zones. 

See the Barclays Life Skills page for information regarding how you can access online/virtual work experience.
