National Careers Week ran from 2nd - 6th March and we were delighted to be able to offer our students the opportunity to learn more about local employers and professions through a range of careers events and activities. These ranged from special careers assemblies to career specific ‘Do Now Activities’ and insert lessons. Feedback from the students has shown that they particularly enjoyed learning about child employment and how old they need to be to get a job.
Year 8 students took part in our Human Library, where representatives from different professions came in to talk to them about their company and employability. The students got stuck in asking lots of questions and really wanted to know more about what our visitors did on a daily basis.
On Friday, Year 9 students were off site for our ‘Take Your Child to Work Day’ where they took part in a varying roles at different organisations. There has been some excellent feedback from their time at work.
A big thank you to our visitors that came to school and to all the parents and carers that took their child to work with them, a really positive day for all.
National Careers Week is a celebration of careers guidance across the UK. It is also a great platform to inform and inspire the next generation as they enter the world of work.
