National Careers Week
Did you know that 85% of jobs in 2030 have not yet been invented?
Building on the success of National Apprenticeship Week in February, last week we celebrated National Careers Week across our school. Students in Years 9-11 undertook CARE sessions on a range of subjects including Key Skills, What are the Benefits of University?, Post-16 and Post-18 Options, as well as a thought-provoking session on Labour Market Information where they explored the Fourth Industrial Revolution and how they can future-proof themselves for a quickly changing job market.
In addition, Year 9 students started thinking about their Option choices by looking at Where Can my Subject Take Me? in lessons and Year 12 attended the Universities and Apprenticeship Fair in Birmingham.
Finally, students' favourite part of the week was, as ever, staff talking to them about their own career paths and the key transferable skills that they have gained. Another successful week which students valued highly.
