Subsequently, Trevor joined BT, in his current role as a Business Partner in BT’s Consumer Division (BT, BT TV/Sport, EE, PlusNet) alongside his role as a 5G Transformation Leader for EE. Trevor is also studying his Postgraduate Studies in People Management.
Trevor has launched his own skills-development programme ‘ELEVATE’, supported by BT, which exclusive to CTK. The aim of the programme is to give young learners the skills, knowledge and experiences for the higher education and the world of work. Here are some videos from BT Elevate covering lots of topics that we wanted to share with year 11 learners.

“I'm aiming to study Computer Science at the University of Sheffield. At CTK all students are equally as motivated to do well, it's a good environment to be in. Teachers really try their hardest to make sure that their students achieve what they are capable of and ensure you get the best grades possible.”
Ella Mae ST MARY'S Grades achieved: A A B A Course: A Level Law Level Psychology A Level Sociology Extended Project

Samad ST MARY'S Course: A Level Media, English Literature and Language and French
“I have really enjoyed my course trips. Also, knowing that everyone else is starting Sixth Form at the same time as you, makes meeting new people and fitting in a lot easier and fun. My teachers have helped me overcome my fear of interacting during class discussions. They encouraged me to participate by giving presentations to the whole class, which boosted my confidence. Teachers will motivate you to achieve the best of your ability.”
Oluwafoluhanmi ST MARY'S Course: A Level Biology, Chemistry and PE
