The Skills Hub Careers Week Round up
We celebrated careers week by not only holding our own Career Fayre but also by opening up the world of careers by inviting a diverse range of guest speakers everyday to speak to the students about their industry.
On Monday we had Rachelle M a Film Maker, who delivered a school Assembly and spoke about her journey, how she got into film making as well as how she makes money. The students were given an opportunity to complete some worksheets based on various factors to be considered when working in the film industry. She was then invited into Digital Media after Lunch to be interview by the students as part of their Silver Award.
On Tuesday we had another school assembly with The Wonder Years organization which focusses on enrichment and raising aspirations in young people. Chris C, Dan F and Nicole Mc were present in speaking to our students.
On Wednesday we held our Career Fayre at The West Drayton Young People Centre which although was a small event our students were given the opportunity to have real conversations around their futures within an environment that meets their comfort needs.
