National Careers Week was a celebration of careers guidance and aimed to raise awareness of the importance of good careers education. During the week, different organisations and speakers were invited to our school where students were given the opportunity to learn more about the various careers in STEM, creative and digital, law, engineering, automotive, hair and beauty, construction, sport and leisure. They also had information about apprenticeships and learned about different pathways career choices. We had a fabulous day with Year 8’s who are in the process of choosing their options. They spent a morning in the chapel and had lots of hands on opportunities such as building a small scale house, trying out their fitness levels and investigating careers in sport and leisure, solving engineering puzzles, learning about careers in the Fire and Rescue Service, trying out CPR, as well as hands on automotive skills Year 10 enjoyed a fascinating workshop about pathways into Law. The week culminated with a fantastic array of employers in talking about their roles during International Women’s Day. All our visitors commented on the excellent appearance, enthusiasm and manners of our students. We look forward to welcoming them back to more Careers events in school and further developing our links with them.
