This term our Year 9 students have been engaged in careers education to help them make informed choices for their Key Stage 4 studies at their chosen Upper School. As part of this, students have been looking at potential careers options.
To support this process, we were lucky enough to greet a number of volunteers from a range of career backgrounds who gave their time to speak with our Year 9 students about their work and their various careers paths. Students met people from the healthcare, business, academic research and creative sectors, with roles varying from engineering to clinical psychology.
Our visitors were impressed with the level of interest shown by our students and by the questions they asked them and with some of the advanced technical and work-related skills our students possess. One of our university-based visitors commented, ‘Can I just say how fantastic and well-mannered the Ivanhoe students were. There were some very interesting discussions during the talks and questions afterwards’
One student said, ‘I wasn’t expecting that job to be so varied,’ and another said ‘I learned a lot in that 20 minutes!’ Staff enjoyed the event as much as the students, with many commenting on how much they had learned, as well as how impressed they had been with the students they were with for the event.
Well done, Year 9 and ‘Thank you’ to parents/carers and friends and family who helped make the event such a success!
