Year 10 PSHE Elective

Professionals from a range of industry sectors ‘Give an Hour’ to talk to Year 10 students

During the Year 10 PSHE elective, students heard from working professionals from a range of different industry sectors as part of the 'Give an Hour' campaign launched by The Careers and Enterprise Company which encourages businesses to give an hour of their, and staff time to helping young people understand the world of work.

Guest speakers spoke about their personal career journey including how they got started and what their day-to-day work involves. They also gave an insight into different routes into the industry including apprenticeships and university, and how to make applications stand out. They also discussed other careers within the company that might be less well known to students.

Amber Colquhoun, Careers Lead, who organised the event, said, ‘The sessions were insightful and guest speakers commented on the quality of questions from students in the Q&A at the end of the session. We would like to thank our guest speakers for volunteering, taking time out of their busy schedule, some travelling from afar, and ‘giving an hour’ to support our students. Students benefitted from hearing about inspiring career journeys and learning of the transferable skills that are applied in the world of work. Many also gained insight into a pathway or industry they had not yet considered. You will have inspired the future generation in more ways than you will know!'
