Experian Leadership Fund Success
Year 13 Experian Leadersip Fund applications wow Sixth Form staff in their interviews.
Mrs Gray and Mrs Davis interviewed nine Year 13 students who applied for the Experian Leadership mentoring fund. They had to complete a five minute presentation and answer questions regarding the qualities and skills they could bring to the young people at Nottingham Academy. They were overwhelmed by the quality of the applicants presentation and all of the skills they were able to demonstrate. The students used excellent examples of how they have worked closely with students in the Academy and some Year 13 students have already started volunteering in the community too.
It was announced that two places have been offered, to Shakiel Clarke and Sydney Pickance. Mrs Gray and Mrs Davies would have liked to offer all the applicants the opportunity if they could!
In all of the interviews students remarked about the quality of support and guidance that Nottingham Academy Sixth Form staff give to them. They were inspirational and no doubt will all be successful with their university courses.
