Hundreds of healthcare professionals from across the UK will be volunteering to present and network with your students who are interested in:
• Veterinary Medicine
At the National Healthcare Weekend on the 18th and 19th November taking place in London, Cardiff, Birmingham, Nottingham and Lancaster: 15 conferences on different specialties on the same weekend!
It is a highly valuable opportunity for students to network with a variety of healthcare professions, learn about work experience opportunities and how to make a successful application.
Registration is £25 for students on the Saturday conferences and there is an optional UCAS lecture available on Sunday for each specialty.
Students can register on the Medic Mentor website and find out more about the events here.
All proceeds from the weekend will be used to support healthcare students with scholarships, elective bursaries, free training and educational initiatives.
Teachers can attend for free, as well as students from low-income backgrounds.

Further information, advice and guidance will be available to students through a series of after-school presentations and PSHE lessons. We would also encourage Year 11 students to attend as many college open evenings as possible.At PCS we also have a well-stocked careers library, if you would like to look at information on specific careers. If you need help accessing any of the websites below or would like to book a careers meeting, please see Miss Newman in the Library.

• Encourage healthy breakfasts
• Ensure your child stays hydrated
• Organisation is crucial!
• Use a notice board / fridge for key dates
• Encourage good sleep patterns (8 hours a night)
• Attend all PCS Year 11 events and College Open Evenings
• Refer to the homework timetable (found on PCS website). Students should be doing some homework every evening,
this is good practise, not only for GCSE’s but for college too
