Employability Day 2021

On Thursday 11 November 34 employers, 2 apprenticeship organisations, 4 universities and 5 college representatives came to meet our Year 10 students.  All Year 10s took part in a one to one interview with an employer.  The University of Westminster, Goldsmiths University, Sheffield University and Ravensbourne College representatives spoke to the tutor groups about what it is like at university.  The Lewisham Borough Apprenticeship Manager and Amazing Apprenticeships Outreach Officer gave presentations in the classrooms about the wide variety of apprenticeships on offer in Lewisham and across London.  Hadlow Agricultural College, London College for Beauty Therapy and Christ the King Sixth Form College informed students of the breadth of course subjects available and about T Levels the new technical qualifications that are being rolled out to replace BTECs.

The pupils really enjoyed the experience of practising their interview skills.  The employers were extremely impressed by the maturity and confidence of our students.  They enjoyed finding out about the school subjects that they study and the clubs that they look forward to.  Well done to all of our Year 10s for their exceptional behaviour and looking so wonderful on Employability Day.
