At Meridian School and Sixth Form College, we believe the health and safety of our students, and indeed, of all those who use the college site, is a top priority. As such, we are trying to raise money, in order to purchase a defibrillator.
We are contacting all those who use the school site, along with others whohave a connection with or interest in the school, to let them know about this fundraising.
We firmly believe that in the case where a defibrillator is available to be used in an emergency, the chances of saving a person’s life are increased hugely, especially if this is available to be usedwithin the first 4 minutes. The arrival of an ambulance is likely to take much longer than this.
In order to be able to buy a defibrillator, with which first aid staff can be trained, we are seeking voluntary donations from parents / carers of our students, as well as from those who use the site during evenings or weekends, or from members of the public who wish to support this venture.
The defibrillator would be available to all who use the site and its facilities. Thank you for supporting our good cause. https://www.justgiving.com/crowdfunding/Meridianschool
KPMG Apprenticeship Success for Isaac Iles at Meridian Sixth Form College
After a rigorous selection process lasting over 3 months, Isaac Iles, a student at Meridian Sixth Form College, has been awarded a prestigious apprenticeship at KPMG.
Everyone at Meridian Sixth Form College is delighted for Isaac.
After successfully making it through this stage, Isaac was invited to KPMG’s assessment centre, where he was further challenged alongside the other candidates.
Isaac said, ‘The help and support I received from Meridian Sixth Form College was essential; Mr Crisford helped prepare me throughout the process, explaining what I was likely to be asked to do, which I am sure gave me an advantage over the other applicants.'
'At the assessment centre we had to complete group exercises, followed by a written report, final interview and self-evaluation. The whole day was really stressful as I was constantly being assessed, however, just over a week later I received confirmation that I had been successful’.
Year 12 Work Experience Programme: Monday 17th – Friday 21st July 2017
We acknowledge at Meridian Sixth Form College how important it is for students to gain valuable experience and skills required for their future career paths, whether it be university courses, further education courses or employment and apprenticeships.
We have spoken to the Year 12 students about the benefits of gaining work experience in Year 12. Most employers, young people and their parents or carers are positive about the experience and recognise the benefits, particularly in the competitive market place that now exists for young people when applying for employment and university courses.
Work Experience placements help young people learn and offer a number of benefits including: providing an insight into the particular skills and attitudes required by particular sectors and employers, a better understanding of changes in the world of work and an opportunity to develop the young person's personal and social skills and increase their maturity.
We know that a work based placement can prepare students for their next steps and believe the skills that are gained will benefit students when writing personal statements and letters of job application.
Work Experience for all Year 12 students will take place for a week from Monday 17th – Friday 21st July 2017.
