Trevor has launched his own skills-development programme ‘ELEVATE’, supported by BT, which exclusive to CTK. The aim of the programme is to give young learners the skills, knowledge and experiences for the higher education and the world of work. Here are some videos from BT Elevate covering lots of topics that we wanted to share with year 11 learners.

“My experience at CTK has improved my sense of self-worth and the one-to-one communication has helped me understand what I need to do to achieve my goals. I'm aiming to go to Queen Mary's University of London to study Physics and Aerospace Engineering. My advice to new students would be to enjoy the experience, make friends with people and study hard to achieve your goals.”
