Preparation for Working Life Day - Tuesday 4th April

As part of our ‘Preparation for Working Life Programme’ we have organised a special whole day event on Tuesday 4th April 2017 to give our Year 10 students an opportunity to:

  • have an interview with a professional member of the local community, or another responsible adult, where they will receive both verbal and written feedback about their strengths and areas for improvement
  • have a group interview task where they will receive verbal and written feedback
  • take part in a workshop run by “I Rock Seminars” about the “World of Work” and how to succeed
  • thoroughly familiarise themselves with our careers software package, “U Explore”, so that both parents and students can get the most out of it
  • think about what they would include in a personal statement
  • take part in business carousels with six local companies.

The timings of the Academy Day will remain the same but each tutor group will have their own timetable, following the programme above, which will be given out to all students on Monday.

This event has always been a positive experience for our students and is an important part of preparing for Work Experience in July 2017.

As conduct and appearance are extremely important to create a positive first impression, we’re offering our students the opportunity to come in business dress which can include suits, dresses, jacket and tie and smart trousers, blouse and skirt, or alternatively they can attend in their usual Academy uniform. Any students in inappropriate dress will be sent home immediately and asked to return in their Academy uniform.

Thank you in advance for your help and support, in what we hope will be a memorable and informative experience.
