All of our Year 7 students had a great day last Monday on their recent ‘jobs and careers’ day taking part in workshops ranging from the use of drones in our working lives to police cadets, archaeology and media make up.They also explored their likes and skills linked to future careers through KUDOS, discovered what ‘career personality’ they were and started preparing action plans and draft CV’s for their future.
A huge thank you to all our visitors on the day who gave the students such a worthwhile insight into their areas of work.
