Nottingham University Hospital (QMC) - A&E department

The A&E department from the QMC is working with NUAST to deliver training to our students on first aid and basic life skills. Our Year 10 students are the first to benefit from the training which has been hugely successful. Students now feel equipped to deal with both minor injuries as well as cope with giving CPR.

University of Nottingham, Ambition Nottingham

Ambition Nottingham is a scheme that provides up to date information, advice and guidance to students to ensure they are making informed decisions when choosing future options and to support their current studies. We have specially selected a group of Year 10 students to take part in the scheme, as they have shown an excellent commitment to their studies and demonstrated their potential to progress to higher education.

Students will benefit from an online Exams Tutor subscription, university taster days and GCSE revision days.

Nottingham Trent University Mentoring Scheme

Part of our partnership work with Nottingham Trent University (NTU) involves our Year 10 and Year 11 students benefiting from one-to-one mentoring sessions from trained mentors, from NTU. The sessions are tailored to meet individual needs and may involve revision and study strategies, careers advise and subject specific tutoring.

Careers Convention -

In November we held our first “Careers Convention” at NUAST. This involved all students from Years 11 and 13. The convention was launched by a STEM ambassador, who talked about how to impress an employer and top tips for interviews. All students then took part in a practice interview given by our partners Siemens and Experian as well as participating in a series of workshops delivered by independent Career Advice and Guidance Practitioners. Workshops focused on career planning with a focus on science, engineering and IT, apprenticeships and higher education courses.

Visit to NUAST by Martin Ivens (Editor of Sunday Times)

NUAST hosted a visit from Martin Ivens who is the Editor for the Sunday Times. Martin had a tour of the building, visited some classes and spoke to students during an “Ask the Editor” session. Students enjoyed speaking to Martin and learnt about his work in editing the paper as well as how he stays informed about it’s readership in a digital world.
