On the last day of the Spring term, we held our first ever, whole-school Careers day in school. As part of this, we completed a range of different activities with school: carrying out mock interviews, challenging gender stereotypes in the workplace, looking at our own personal skill sets and analysing what wages different professions are paid.
In the afternoon, the children also got the opportunity to learn about a range of different jobs through short videos made by different professions. We were fortunate to have a wide range of jobs, from a penguin keeper to a TV and film lawyer, a Member of Parliament to a firefighter, a vet to a clay sculptor who works fro Mercedes Benz. We even had a international tennis umpire!
The children were fantastic and fully engaged across the day and staff were left amazed by how many of them could already explain what careers were beginning to interest them. The world of word seems to be in safe hands!
