This Wednesday Mrs Heath and Mr Curtis took 11 lucky Year 7 students to the Get Inspired careers event at the Guildhall in Portsmouth, run by EBP South.
The event is a huge demonstration of different careers and is designed to be user-friendly and interactive to get students to start considering what they want to do once they leave school. There were all sorts of options available to have a look at. These included Colleges, apprenticeships, the Armed Forces and many more options. There were numerous activities and experiences to have a go at including making a TV news report, engineering challenges, changing a car tyre, virtual reality design, DJ’ing and everyone’s favourite: curry-making and sampling. The whole event was brilliant and we’re going to take more students next year.
But don’t just take our word for it: here’s what the students thought of it:
Ashley: “It was really interesting and helped us choose options for our future careers. It made me think more about engineering as you get to fix planes build planes and bridges and things - overall the day was brilliant.”
Lucy May: “I just really liked it overall because there were loads of fun things to do. And freebies! I got like a million freebies. I really like the idea of working in Animal Care because I've always liked animals. I thought as I'm already taking care of a horse, dogs and a cat at home, maybe I should make a career out of it.”
An excellent and worthwhile trip out.
