On Thursday 21st September, around 100 pupils from Years 7-13 attended a thought-provoking Scholars’ Forum presentation on A level choices by Ms Rebecca Woolley, Director of the charity organisation, ‘Action on Hearing Loss’.
Ms Woolley spoke to pupils about her own career path which she started in the NHS Graduate Scheme, followed by ten years in the NHS developing services across South Wales for dentists, pharmacists, GPs and optometrists.
Pupils were surprised to discover that Ms Woolley had gained A levels in English Literature, History, Music and Drama. Ms Woolley went on to explain about the huge range of opportunities after School and how A level choices equip students with many transferrable skills that can be applied to many different career paths.
Clifton High pupils were engaged by Ms Woolley’s talk and gained valuable knowledge about A level choices and future careers.
