National Careers Week 2023
From 6th to 10th March, we celebrated National Careers Week in school. National Careers Week is driven to support all students to understand, realise and fulfil their careers goals.
The week is designed to ensure education is clearly and explicitly linked to the world of work and further learning, resulting in better decision-making by students. During this week, across the school, students had the opportunity to complete activities and quizzes, as well as hear information about careers linked to their curriculum subjects. Many students took advantage of the free virtual careers fair that showcased over 100 employers and Further Education/Higher Education institutions, completing a virtual treasure hunt as they navigated round the event.
Students attended assemblies based on the theme of hope for the future and raising their aspirations which also covered questions that they should be reflecting on at their current point in education. In registration, students completed various careers-based activities including crosswords and scavenger hunts. On Satchel, there were daily information sheets tailored for students’ key stage showing videos with careers path information and highlighting sources of research for them.
It was great to hear students around the school talking with teachers and other staff about their career aspirations with staff providing an insight into their own personal career paths. Thank you to all staff and students who supported and engaged with all the opportunities and resources available.
