In our drive to ensure that our students receive the best possible education, one which provides wide-ranging personal development, we host regular speaker sessions for our sixth form students. These sessions are designed to inspire our students to explore a wide range of career options and further education paths. We are delighted that so many high-profile, interesting and well-qualified people are eager to speak at these events.
Speakers at Michaela have included CEOs, business founders, Oxford and Cambridge university professors, MPs, doctors, barristers, bankers, TV producers, entrepreneurs, journalists, authors and more, and every year, we create a varied programme of events that is sure to offer something for every student.
These events are open to all Michaela Sixth Form students and take place in the Sixth Form Common Room. They are optional, but it is expected that students will attend at least one or two talks every half term in areas of interest or disciplines that are relevant to their course of study. These talks are highly engaging, allowing pupils to see their subjects and different professions from a different perspective.
They can also contribute to the wealth of knowledge students will want to take to their university entrance interviews. It is an opportunity to build a relationship with speakers for the future, who might then be able to help with the university application process or in seeking work experience.
Talks take place regularly after school, from 3pm to around 4pm. The list of speakers is regularly updated, and a sample can be viewed here.
