    As part of our National Careers Week we had the opportunity to invite student volunteers from Loughborough University Students’ Union Action group into our assembly. The volunteers introduced our students to university and alternative pathways P18 such as apprenticeships and T levels.  

    Our students were able to take part in a Q&A session on student life which addressed issues such as student finance and independent living. This is our second year hosting the event and we look forward to future visits from their enthusiastic student volunteers.

  • World Of work day

    Published 31/03/23

    On our recent World of Work day all our Y10 students were able to have a first-hand experience of a workplace.  During the W.O.W. day we took the students out of the classroom and into the workplace to highlight the opportunities available to them when they leave school or college.  They spent the day looking at career prospects in a particular industry sector of their choice. Looking at different jobs available and the skills needed to be successful. The sectors we visited were Law at Leicester Town Hall, Art and Design at LCB Depot in Leicestershire, Public Services at RAF Wittering and Health Care at De Montfort University.

    Both staff and students loved the day, for the variety of activities that we were able to participate in and the widening of skills, knowledge and horizons!

    The day was organised by L.E.B.C an independent charity, who work with employers, schools and colleges with the aim of helping young people to prepare for working life.
