Students on different medicine summer experience programmes

 Medicine I Veterinary I Dentistry I Psychology I Forensic Science

Your students can get all the hands-on work experience they need with us this summer, with immersive medical experiences in hospitals and clinics across London alongside doctors, dentists, vets, psychologists and more.


Our Summer Experiences are almost fully-booked and we expect to close registration in the next few days.

Chartered Accountancy Apprenticeship with National Audit Office

These days there are several routes into the professional workplace and whilst university is still a popular route, apprenticeships are becoming more prevalent amongst students.

University is not right for everyone, and apprenticeships are a great way to earn a salary and gain a professional qualification combined with real work experience.

With that in mind, have you heard about the fantastic Apprentice Accountancy Scheme with the National Audit Office (NAO) based in London and Newcastle?


Click here to apply


The NAO has a unique position, and their work is highly influential. Totally and distinctively independent, they scrutinise public spending for Parliament and investigate major government projects and programmes. That means they work for, and for the good of, everyone in the country. Their people have a great reputation among their clients, Parliament, other international audit institutions and the wider accountancy profession.

For your child, this means challenging and varied work that makes a visible impact and has real value for the nation. A career at the NAO will equip your child with the skills they need for an impactful and rewarding career.

Why they should apply...

  • Achieve a fully funded ACA qualification, setting them up with the expertise and knowledge they need for a successful career
  • Have a nationwide influence as they work on key financial audits that support the improvements to vital public services
  • Gain skills such as teamwork, critical/analytical thinking, communication, and leadership
  • Earn while they learn – no student debt! Enjoy a competitive salary and other brilliant benefits

If they’re looking for a career where they can make a difference, the NAO is for them. If they’re ready to begin their journey with the NAO, direct them to the apply button above. Hurry though, the deadline is 27th March 2023 (23:59).

Year 12 careers cafes

On Monday 4th July 2022 John Harris (Deputy Head of Science, Engineering and Technology at Kingston College who leads L4 and L5 courses in engineering and Schools Partnership Co-Ordinator Richard Fisher from Kingston College and Gareth Burden from National grid came to do our first careers café.

The premise being a relaxed opportunity to hear about sectors of industry and for students to be able to ask questions.

Those that attended found it interesting, but I think the turnout didn’t make for a great start.  Rolling these out next academic years they will be open to years 11,12 and 13 and run once a term.

On Thursday 7th July we had David Anstee (Family Law Solicitor at KWW Solicitors)
Susie Burley (Future Family Law Barrister) come to talk to students about legal careers and Vera Bermingham, speak about admissions hints and tips and what applicants should think about.
Feedback was positive from both and would love to run these sessions again for a wider audience. 

Student feedback included:

  • More research into my career
  • Look into volunteering and research projects more in preparation for my UCAS application.

What areas of industry would you like to have a cafe session on?

  • Maths and Computer Science
  • Apprenticeship
  • Biology/science

Dates for 2022/23 to be confirmed soon- programme for the year will appear here.
