The children have really benefited from the teamwork activities. Especially the marshmallow exercise as some students had to work with people they wouldn’t usually work with - similar to how it would be in the workplace.
Thanks for organising your Careers Adviser to come into school today. She was fantastic…very easy to work with and excellent with the students.
…. had a very successful group interview at the AECC (Anglo-European College of Chiropractic) and received two offers from them a couple of days later! He was highly delighted, as you can imagine. Many thanks for your help and advice in his preparation: he had an impressive strategy worked out, felt confident and took full advantage of the tips you gave him in the interview!
This professional and engaging carousel programme has empowered our students to open their minds about potential professions, how to go about sourcing education and training but also providing them with the skill set to complete GCSEs, work experience and post-16 choices.
Ideas4Careers are to be congratulated on this innovative approach, they clearly understand how important it is to give students the tools to gain meaningful employment. I will be glad to help at future events.
The afternoon networking session with business leaders was fantastic. There was a real buzz in the room as students were given the opportunity to quiz industry representatives and gain an insight into the day-to-day role of each job.
