It is never too early to start thinking about your future! Year 7 students were challenged to do just that when they recently took part in an employer speed networking event. In groups of six or seven, Year 7 students had ten minutes to interview a professional with an interesting career to find out as much about their job as possible before the whistle blew and they moved onto the next person!

Visitors were blown away with the quality of the questions students asked them. Questions range from 'what qualifications do you need to do your job? to 'what is the most interesting thing that has ever happened to you at work?' to (the most impressive question of the day) -  'do you feel the media portrays your profession in an accurate way?'

Students were given the opportunity to interview people with a range of jobs, including a deep sea diver, a chiropractor, a physiotherapist, an accountant, a social worker, a building surveyor, a care home manager and others. The feedback from the event was tremendous. 86% of the year group said it opened their eyes to jobs they never knew existed. 75% said the event made them realise that getting good qualifications are key to widening their opportunities in the world of work when they are older. Added to this, a good time was had by all!

A massive thank you to all the visitors who gave up their time to come in and talk to students about their job. If you are in employment and willing to do the same we would love to hear from you!
