When we had our Careers Day, back in Year 7, our students left school thinking about their future. Of course, we understand that this is in itself a process, so to help facilitate that process we decided to give our Year 8’s an insight into the working life of a professional; but not just one, we chose four! With the help of our contacts over at Wellington Place, 4 professionals allowed us intimate access to their working lives; one was from the construction sector, one the financial services sector, one engineering & one was a civil servant. The idea was for our students to start thinking about what working in these sectors actually means, and how they would get there. Below are some examples of the effort and interest some of our Year 8’s showed in this challenge.
