The latest Leigh UTC business breakfast was hosted by Year 12 IBCP students on Wednesday 23rd May. Held in the boardroom of the newly built Inspiration Academy, guests from a variety of sectors were ably guided through the attributes of IBCP students.

The International Baccalaureate has long been recognised for its value in giving a well-rounded education and producing successful, highly able individuals. The UTC is one of a few schools in the UK to take on its Careers-related Program (IBCP), a bespoke course which aims to prepare students for the workplace, while also providing them with the skills that the IB programme is so widely recognised for.

IBCP students strive to be:

  • Inquirers
  • Knowledgeable
  • Thinkers
  • Communicators
  • Principled
  • Open-Minded
  • Caring
  • Risk-Takers
  • Balanced
  • Reflective

As part of their serviced learning, students had arranged the event and all guests agreed that they had successfully executed their task with the breakfast concluding with a tour of both the Inspiration Academy and The Leigh UTC.
