Employability Day 2023

On Friday, November 17th, Year 10 students participated in Employability Day, engaging in one-on-one interviews with employers and attending presentations from Post-16 providers. Thirty visitors from diverse backgrounds interviewed students, providing valuable insights into various job sectors. Presentations by the Lewisham Borough Apprenticeship Manager and Goldsmiths University highlighted apprenticeship opportunities and higher education courses in Lewisham. The students, who showcased impressive interview skills, received positive feedback from employers, impressed by their maturity and confidence. Congratulations to all Year 10 students for their exceptional behaviour on Employability Day!
