Year 13 - Preparing for University

Year 13 spent Super Learning Day on Thursday 24th March 'preparing for university' by attending interactive workshops led by the UEA on student budgeting, sourcing employment/internships during & after university and preparing to leave home.

The year group enjoyed having the opportunity to develop different transferable skills and refresh their motivation towards making the last steps to secure their university place. Ashley Weirich, a past Springwood student from Santander delivered a session on student banking, explaining the vitals of managing university finance from APR, AER, overdrafts and interest rates. A year 13 student claimed "the day was so useful because it gave us a chance to think about stuff we hadn't considered before- finding about a student bank account has meant I now know how to handle my student finances and the UEA workshop helped me to find out about possible internships."  

An excellent day had by all!
