The World of Work!

Year 7 had an exciting careers morning exploring the World of Work on Thursday 27th June. They were delighted to hear from Marlene Boateng, from Berkley Homes who shared her career journey so far and highlighted the importance of a can do attitude and flexibility. Students also learnt from her all about Careers in Construction & The Property Development Cycle and the skills future employers are looking for. They continued the morning exploring the variety of jobs that exist across many industries, understanding the importance of different subjects and how they apply to the working world. They committed to different actions to develop their behaviour and skills to improve their future opportunities in the workplace.

 A challenging and enjoyable morning with special thanks to Marlene and Berkley Homes for supporting this event.
