On Wednesday we hosted a Y8 ‘Discover, Believe, Become‘ careers day. Over 180 students worked together for the day, learning and practising vital skills such as teamwork, problem solving and resilience. Students were taught the importance of how they should present themselves to prospective employers, as well as the importance of gaining work experience.
Y8 students were also introduced to the concept of ‘Black Box Thinking’ which they found fascinating. The day finished with a quiz looking at local market information as well as students setting aspirational future goals. Overall it was a very successful day giving students a taste of the skills required for 21st century employment.
