Creative challenges have helped young people to cope with lockdown. The school – which opened in September with the one cohort – has ensured students had a variety of activities to tackle which took them away from the computer screen. https://t.co/lkH1vkMFmi https://t.co/puEfAJKO2k

Careers week finds students' ambition

Careers week finds students' ambition

Posted: 31st March 2020

A young boy has his future career mapped out after being inspired during a week dedicated to sparking aspirations in children.

Sir Frederick Gibberd College held a careers week to open children’s eyes to the many professions available to them in future.

Year 7 Marcus Krencius has set his sights on becoming a software programmer after learning of the role during the week.

He said: “Having found out that the skills needed are the things I like to do, like using the computer and programming, I now want to go into that profession. I went and did some further research on the role and so know more about it now than I knew before careers week.”

Students completed a personality and skills survey to give a clearer idea of the types of careers which may suit them.

During the week, they also looked at further education options for post-14, post-16 and post-18 and found out about admissions into sixth form and university and apprenticeships.

Students also looked at mental health, stress and anxiety in relation to school and the future.

Headteacher Dee Conlon said: “We look at careers as part of our curriculum through the year, with lots of different ways to integrate careers into our lessons, enrichment, extra-curricular activities and learning outside of the classroom, with trips, workshops and guest speakers.

“Our young people know from day one that school is a stepping-stone to the rest of their lives. During their first week here – orientation week – they do lots of work on careers and aspirations, so we get them thinking about their futures from the very start.

“It’s all about showing students the connection between the subjects they are learning and how they are used in the real world and the jobs they link to.

“Careers week was a good opportunity to find out what careers matched with students’ characteristics. Some of the jobs they learnt about they would never have heard of before.”

Every half-term, students also experience Discovery Hour, a university-style seminar where subjects are brought to life and linked to careers, British Values, religious education and spiritual, moral social and cultural development. This enables pupils to see the importance of school and the subjects they are studying.
