Year 10 Speedy Careers PDP Day

On 2nd November, as part of PDP day, Year 10 students took part in “Speedy Careers”.   This was an opportunity for students to meet with a range of people from a variety of industry sectors, over 20 business volunteers took part in the event.  Students had just a few minutes to talk to each person about their current job, their previous roles, their qualifications and how they got to where they are today.  This helped them understand more about the wide variety of different career pathways available to them in the future.

As part of the day students also had specific talks from guest speakers about University, Apprenticeships and Being Self-Employed, as well as taking part in an Interview Workshop.
