1st July 2019

On 10th June all of Year 8 were off timetable for an careers/enterprise event, Learn to Earn, delivered by volunteers from Young Enterprise. The programme inspires students and provides information on career options to help make informed choices. Students set goals and plan their next steps to prepare them for life beyond education. Through hands-on fun, practical activities, Learn to Earn explores themes such as career choices, personal skills and talents, recruitment and job interviews, salaries, earnings, tax and the costs of living, financial planning and budgeting. It got them to consider their future possible careers and the different paths they can take to get there. The students learnt skills in communication, financial capability, organisation, team work, problem solving and resilience. The students also got to hear about each of the individual volunteers careers route.
