February Enrichment Week 2021

Posted: 10th February 2021

Next week (15th-19th February) is our enrichment week at Cardiff Sixth Form College and with Lockdown still being in place in the UK we have created a range of activities for students to safely take part in over the week during their break from lessons and assessments.

Our annual physics trip to CERN in Geneva unfortunately cannot go ahead this year, so instead we have arranged for a talk from a CERN member of staff who will provide an online presentation introducing CERN, it’s missions, the big physics questions they are addressing and taking questions from our students.

Our Careers department have created a five-day programme as part of their Virtual Enrichment Week with a series of extra-curricular activities, taking place every morning, to hopefully broaden and confirm future career options. Opportunities to CSFC students include:

Forensic Science – Catarina Sobreira, University Of Dundee

An excellent opportunity to discuss with Catarina Sobreira about a career choice into Forensic Sciences with both university and industry talk. Suitable for students interested in a career path of Healthcare and Law.

Neurosciences – Iula Nita, University College London

Iula Nita from UCL has offered a discussion and careers talk into Neurosciences with some details on her background as a University scientist, providing university and industry advice on future career opportunities whilst studying a degree. This careers talk is for any students interested in Natural Sciences or Medicine.
