Year 11 Career Day Helps Students Take Next Steps To Success
/ Categories: News
Our Year 11 students spent the day focusing on life after secondary school as part of our dedicated Careers Day.
The group had access to resources, workshops and even virtual mock interviews all day, while they also arrived in smart business wear rather than their usual school uniform.
Students were given valuable interview experience via video calls with staff from local business Lex Autolease. They also had the chance to access virtual open events and prospectuses for further education providers including Aquinas and Xaverian colleges as well as WHGS Sixth Form.
Workshops focused on sharing information on traineeships and apprenticeships, as well as budgeting and money management skills. MADE Training also offered students sessions on revision skills and building resilience, while a representative from the RAF was also on hand to offer career advice to students interested in a career in the armed forces.
At the end of the day, every student was presented with a revision pack to take home, which included stationery and a treat.
CEIAG (Careers, Education, Information Advice and Guidance) co-ordinator Mr O’Neill said: “Our Careers Day was a huge success and it was great to see our Year 11s so engaged in finding out more information about what their next steps could be after Stockport Academy.
“They showed great character in their handling of new challenges and it was brilliant to see them make the most of the day.
“I would like to thank everyone involved in contributing to today’s programme – it has offered our students valuable insight and experience to help them achieve their exciting potential.”
