Careers Talks and Events
Employer presentations are one of the most effective and direct methods of informing students about career opportunities and career pathways in your industry. We run a number of large events during Year 11 as well as assemblies to provide students with ‘Career Insights’. These are information giving sessions where the objective of the talk should be to give an insight into different types of careers, and ideally should be general to the sector. It should describe the type of jobs/sectors available, typical career progression, future developments, etc. Students are also always very interested in the qualities that employers are looking for as well as how to prepare for selection events.
Work placements are invaluable in helping our students to develop their understanding of the world of work, make more informed career choices and raise their awareness of the employability skills they need to build successful careers. It also helps our students to grow in confidence and maturity.
We are always looking for employers to host students for placements, whether for one day, a whole week or for a few hours a week on a regular basis.
Mock interviews offer an excellent opportunity for students to practise their interview skills and gain valuable feedback. As well as showing your commitment to the School, mock interviews also give you the opportunity to develop the skills of your own younger or less experienced staff. We run a full morning of interviews with all students in Year 10 to develop these skills. Students who require a little more support participate in preparation sessions and some of our most talented students participate in an assessment centre.
If you would like to take part any of these events or can accommodate one of our students in your work place, please do get in touch.
