A busy few days

What I love about my business is the sheer variety. Here’s a snapshot of the last few days.

SEE PROJECT

I was invited to run a workshop for the SEE Project for delegates from Ireland, Czechoslovakia, Holland and Turkey. I spoke about how I deliver Careers Advice and got them to do a short design, build and present STEM activity.

Lovely people and I was most impressed with the delegate from Turkey who bravely stood up in front of everyone to do his presentation in English. He did a great job. Much better than I could have done in Turkish.

ANTI-BULLYING DAY

Chase Terrace Technology College invited me to run a Bullying Awareness Day for Year 7 pupils. We discussed bullying issues in school and online then got them to write and deliver a presentation on bullying-prevention techniques.

An excellent day supported by Carole Hands (Helping Hands), Darren Christie (DWP) and Jacqui Pountney MBE.

CAREERS ADVICEĀ 

As well as one-to-one interviews, I have also brought speakers into schools to give advice as industry professionals. Pictured is Hope Nightingale from Birmingham City University talking about careers in Arts, Media and Fashion to year 11 pupils at Aldridge School.

 

I am blessed to have found something I enjoy that also has the benefit of developing our young people.

Aldridge School Interact Team

I love developing partnerships and this is my latest one.

Aldridge School Sixth Form have created an Interact Club in partnership with the Rotary Club of Walsall. It’s an initiative to provide enrichment experiences for young people by supporting various Rotary Club activities.

The first Aldridge School Interact activity is to support the annual Santa Sleigh Fundraising event all around the Walsall area.

Pictured are the Interact Team in their fundraising outfits.

If you’re around Walsall in the next few days please give generously as all money raised will go towards Rotary Club nominated charities.
