Medic Mentor – you may recall I mentioned this for anyone interested in medicine, vet medicine or dentistry as a career. They have useful conferences but there is a fee however here is a useful hack from SDS. Put in the code SDS2021 and it will waive the fees :0)
Another useful snippet is Investment 20/20 for pupils / leavers interested in finance, business management and HR – it has traineeships and apprenticeships. Those interested can register at www.investment2020.org.uk

I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your ongoing support throughout this half-term. The pandemic continues to test us in so many ways but I believe that we face every challenge with a positive approach.
I do hope that our pupils take time to rest over the February break and that everyone in the family stays safe.
With very best wishes,
