National Careers Week

National Careers Week (NCW) is a celebration of careers guidance and free resources in education across the UK. The aim is to provide a focus for careers guidance activity at an important stage in the academic calendar to help support young people leaving education. Careers Week encourages education providers to bring together students, local employers and advisers through careers events and activities.

This year we were able to listen to virtual talks, podcasts and join in with some fun activities and practice our interview skills and develop our interests. Some of use were in class and others could join in online via google classroom! It was a lot of fun and we really enjoyed it. Here are some of the comments and photos from what we enjoyed last week!

'I really enjoyed being a Museum Tour Guide during Career's Week and putting on a puppet show.'

'I liked seeing PC Shaw on the Zoom call as I like the Police.'

'Their was lots of charisma and creativity in the room from the panel of guests! Wonderful Q&A. Final advice from the panel was "Believe in yourself' their are many opportunities emerging in the creative industry for children and adults with SEN and not to give up!'

'It was very good to have a Zoom chat with a lady called Mary who went to a special needs school and now works in a hotel in Greenwich'

'Thank you Lauren! We really enjoyed listening and speaking to Mary and her family this morning, such a beautiful and happy journey the family have been on!x'

'Craft Day was fun using the real tools to make bird boxes'
