Career Detective Day

On Thursday 6th April, Year 10 students were involved in a career detective day organised by ‘Into Ambition’. The purpose of the day was to give students an insight into the world of work; the vast array of career choices out there and the possible routes into them.

The students were placed into groups with a business representative who they grilled (with some really probing, intelligent questions) for ten minutes, making notes to evaluate later. A bell sounded, music was played and the visitor from the world of work moved onto the next group. It was like speed dating for careers! There were also two ‘break out’ rooms where students were taken for one of two workshops. Representatives from the army were in one and Worcester University were in the other – very different workshops but both very informative.

At the end of the day, the students were asked to evaluate the notes they had made and prepare some final hot seat questions for our guests who were lined up at the front of the hall. They didn’t hold back – the questions were again well thought out and really insightful. A brilliant day!

Comments from the students:

“I didn’t know how much you had to do to become a vet – I thought you just had to like animals but the woman told me what I had to do at each step and I know I can do it!”

“I liked the fact that we got to speak to everyone. I discovered some ideas that I hadn’t even considered before.”

“I didn’t realise there were so many options in IT!”
