This year we revamped our Year 8 careers day to add interest and choice for our students, and to allow them to find out about a range of careers.
As a school we have guidelines to deliver quality careers education to our young people, this includes creating a stable careers programme which links curriculum learning to careers. To do this successfully we need the support of business professionals and other learning providers to :
• Give students a realistic view of job opportunities and work place expectations.
• Broaden students horizons of different industries and job roles within industries.
• Encourage students to assess their transferable skills: academic, practical and personal.
• Help students choose appropriate qualifications for GCSE’s and Post 16.
• Encourage social mobility and raised aspirations for students from disadvantaged backgrounds.
It has been found that students who have quality careers education are more engaged in education and highly motivated about their future when they have a clear understanding of themselves and how they might live and work when they leave school.
For businesses and learning providers, our ‘Careers Day’ was a fantastic opportunity for employers to talk directly to students and to inspire them into their industry. It is also a relaxed opportunity for students to ask questions and find out more.
All of the students in Year 8 were involved and chose 4 talks to listen to across a 2 hour period.
Feedback from students and visitors was positive.
John Delderfield from Stephenson College said, “The event was very well organised. Students were very well behaved and polite. A credit to their school. “
A huge thank you to all of the businesses who took part.
