Alternative Pathways Day
Unloc Organisation presents Alternative Pathways Day
We were delighted to host Unloc’s insightful Alternative Pathways Session which focused on understanding career options as well as apprenticeships and traineeships. Unloc are an educational organisation that aim to develop the potential of young people.
The educational event spanned over two hours, beginning with an introduction of the facilitators and the objective for the event, which was to inform learners about the alternative avenues for them to progress after studying at CTK. Students were then encouraged to participate in a Q&A segment led by Colin Yaoshioka-Smith (Training Academy) which looked specifically at Apprenticeships and Traineeships.
The session then moved on to a talk by Mo Hussain (Best Practice People) who explained the apprentice hiring process in certain sectors. This was then followed by Alan Hunte’s (Thoth London) segment on the future of employment. Finally, lead facilitator Stacey Bawden then finished the presentation by talking to the students about other, equally important factors in career exploration such as personal SWOT (Strength, Weakness, Opportunity and Threat) analysis and goal setting.
The learners found the Alternative Pathways Session highly informative and educational, and we are incredibly happy that we can continue to provide such fantastic sessions to our learners in order to further prepare them for the future.
We would like to say a special thanks to Unloc and Stacey Bawden for facilitating the session and to our Careers department, for seeking out and working with these educational organisations to further enrich our students with quality careers information and advice.
