Super-curricular opportunities with professional organisations

If you are going on to do A’ levels or an academic Level 3 course at post 16, consider signing up as a student member to a professional organisation. In the future, you might want to be an Architect, Scientist, Explorer/ Geographer, Artist, Doctor etc. many professional organisations run fascinating events for young people to inspire them into these careers. Sutton Virtual School can support foster carers with any subscription fees, if applicable.
