What a great day with Aldridge School Year 10 pupils today. They did a range of skills development activities which included writing a CV, a Letter of Application and inventing and presenting a new business.
There was a lot of facing fears as well as creativity and presenting skills on show.
Business supporters attending the event as facilitators and judges were: Jacqui Pountney MBE, Richard Scott and Sue Bedward of Space2focus. They interacted with the pupils, helped develop their ideas and had the tough job of choosing the eventual winners.
Rachael and Jo from InComm Training came in to give talk on Apprenticeships and how to apply as well as discussing employability skills.
I’ll be using the experience of working with Year 10 when I start their Careers interviews in a couple of weeks’ time.
