Year 10 welcomed the Young Enterprise Team into school this week to develop their employability skills. Students started the day by looking at their personal and unique qualities which they could use when completing college/job applications. They then focused on creating their ‘Own Personal Brand’ to encourage a college/employer to invest in them as individuals.
Continuing with this ethos, the students progressed to applying their ‘Personal Brand’ into a CV and Personal Statement to make themselves ‘jump off the page’. The Students looked at the scenario of an interview, particularly looking at the do’s and don’ts. The day finished with a group activity where they had to create their own business looking at money management and creating a profit.
Mr Baines said “This was a fantastic event for Year 10. I purposely tied this event into the timetable of students applying for student leadership roles. Students left the theatre absolutely ecstatic saying how they will be using the information learnt when completing their applications for Head Boy/Girl positions”
