To introduce pupils to the benefits of attending university. To introduce students to potential career paths which they may not have considered previously. To provide pupils with support in writing their CV
As a charity, we were fortunate enough to draw upon experience from many sectors to help with the delivery of this project. Sessions were delivered to 25 Y11 students covering careers in: Law, music, fashion, medicine and business. Careers experts were able to support children with their CV’s and interview skills.
All students finished the course with a complete and up-to-date CV which they could use to help them gain future employment. Some of the pupils had been inspired to pursue higher education and others had enjoyed the opportunity to learn about possible career paths.
