Supporting success – useful resources and links
The information on our “Supporting success” 2018 Supporting Success Useful Resources and Links will signpost you to resources that we recommend for studying and revision in each subject. You can think about which resources to invest in (e.g. books) or which websites to set up as favourites in your browser so you can go back to it time and time again.
Destinations route map
There are many options available to our students in terms of their future after they leave UTC Oxfordshire. Our destinations route map shows these different options and is designed to help students make decisions about their next steps.
Further and Higher Education
We support our students’ applications to a wide variety of college and university courses in the following ways: talks in school from City of Oxford College, UCAS and Oxford Brookes University; encouraging students to attend information evenings, open days and taster events; interview support and tutorial activities.
We support our students’ applications to local and national apprenticeship schemes by signposting opportunities in the following ways: regular careers talks from local industry partners; drop in sessions with local employers; sharing opportunities via our Facebook groups (UTC Oxfordshire Parents Group and UTC Oxfordshire Pioneers); direct emails to students via their school accounts; tutorials on creating a CV and letter of application; newsletters.
A good starting point for an apprenticeship search is the Government website:
- Put in career aim e.g. engineering, science or business as your key word
- Enter your home postcode
- The distance of the search from your home postcode (start with 10 miles)
- Select all levels
- Press search
