UNIVERSITY CAREERS & ADVICE
Preparing every student for life after A levels is very important to us so each student is given a personalised programme of support.
All university applicants will be individually guided through the process; students needing several one-to-one sessions with our Director of Studies will be granted these - there are no group sessions. A typical programme of support would include:
Personal statement preparation
Support with applying for work experience (CV and covering letter writing)
Mock interviews and feedback
Advice on preparing for admissions, aptitude & entrance tests
How to handle interviews
This ensures each student will make a strong application.
Some students find it difficult to write a personal statement. Students at TeachBahrain are supported individually throughout the process and encouraged to think carefully about why they are applying for a particular course and the career that may follow. The College is skilled at encouraging and guiding students in constructing a narrative about them that truly reflects their experience and interests and concisely explains why they may wish to study a specific subject.
All A level and IGCSE students have access to our careers service. This can be one-off advice or a series of sessions. At GCSE level, the Assemblies are used to provide insights into various career options and students are encouraged to start reading about job roles and functions. The careers advice at A level is largely undertaken by the Director of Studies (DoS) who steers students in the right direction and highlights literature that can be accessed to help make more informed decisions. The DoS also works closely with teaching colleagues who can further explain what is entailed in careers such as business, medicine, engineering or the media.
