On Friday morning we held our Virtual Year 8 Careers Networking Event in order to give students an insight into the different careers available to them. During the session we had several people from different career backgrounds join us virtually through Google Meet and provide us with information such as the skills, entry requirements, daily responsibilities and much more linked to their jobs. This was an important event which has given our students the opportunity to start thinking about their future and what careers/options they may want to choose.
Here is some feedback provided by our Year 8 students:
“It gave us more ideas about what we want to be when we are older and what options we should pick for next year.”
“This event helped us think about what we would like to do once we leave Sharples such as Apprenticeships or Colleges or University.”
“I am feeling very inspired after speaking to the different people this morning, especially the solicitor.”
