Careers Events and Opportunities

Welcome to our careers events page, which details current opportunities available to our students:


An admissions representative from our link college at the University of Oxford is running two assemblies for aspiring Year 10 pupils. All Year 10 pupils are welcome to attend, especially those who are considering progressing to high-tariff universities such as Oxford, Cambridge and other Russell Group universities. The sessions are always very engaging and well-received by KEVICC students. The two sessions will be different and students are strongly encouraged to attend both.

The sessions take place as follows:

Thursday 25th Feb at 1:40pm. Link below:

Thursday 11th March: Venue TBC


NHS Free Virtual Experience Day:


  • March 1 @ 14:15 - 15:15 Nursing - Acute & Critical Care Needs (Sheffield) & Mental Health Nursing (Surrey) (KS5) Find out more »

On 1st March we are running a slightly different format with Sheffield and Surrey where they will each give a mini lecture related to one of their Nursing modules and then go on to discuss the learning experience associated with the module and others at university. It should be very enlightening for students interested in this path but will also support existing studies and interests related to mental health nursing and acute and critical care needs.
