Year 7 Business Breakfast

Last Friday we welcomed representatives from local businesses into the Academy.   They spent time with Year 7 students explaining their job role, what qualifications they needed to do their job and how they got to their current position.  The aim of the activity was to introduce students to the world of work and training and help them appreciate that their education and qualifications prepares them for work.  Here’s what some of the students said.

Hoorain: “It was great.  We spoke to many visitors including a soldier and a person from the NHS.  I really enjoyed it.”

Lucy:  “It was a good way of making us think about growing up.”

Daniel:  “It was great because I learnt about different types of job.”

Shannon:  “The session gave me ideas of what I want to do when I am older.”
