It was our pleasure to be joined in the Good Morning Emmanuel studio by EC alumni Sarah and Sophie . The ladies discussed their academic interests, university choices, and their current job roles at the Department for Work & Pensions (DWP). The 1350 students were gripped; indeed, the 30 minute assembly was over in a flash. The ladies were also kind enough to accompany me to my A Level class where they spent another hour answering questions and encouraging the students. A real tonic for the students after a difficult and uncertain period of lockdown working from home.
GME was recorded and followed the outline below.
- Alumni – class of 20??;
- Participation/responsibilities in the sixth form;
- A levels – why you chose your particular suite of subjects;
- University – how your course differs from the traditional full-time university course – pros and cons?
- Brief example of how you are using the theory that you learned at school; and
- Women in STEM.
