On Tuesday 10th December we were excited to work with Salford Foundation and the Salford Business Education partnership to invite employers and further education providers in for a ‘World of Work’ morning to inspire students to follow their pathway into their Dream Job. Representatives from Trafford College, The Manchester College, the R.A.F., BCEGI construction, Wilmott Dixon Construction and Regatta Great outdoors spoke to all of our year 9 students to inform them of the wide variety of roles in the sector, the workplace skills they would need to demonstrate and the pathways that the visitors followed into employment. Students also had many questions of their own to ask and seemed particularly interested in the jobs where they could drive a nice car!
Some quotes from our students which show what they learnt from the experience:
“I learnt about the visitors’ paths to their jobs.”
“I would like to find out more information about being a quantity surveyor”.
“I found out about careers in HR and marketing”.
“ I now the subjects that I need to do well in in my GCSEs to do law.”
