Careers and Current Issues Explored
22 May 2019
Students had the chance to explore a wide range of issues and subjects and get a taste for a variety of careers as part of Curriculum Collapse.
For the first two periods today year groups took part in a number of different activities with Year 7 looking at the issue of knife crime and taking part in a Youth Parliament Survey.
For Year 8 there were sessions as part of the Who Cares Project which explores the impact of living with a parent or carer with poor mental health.
Knife Crime and County Lines were on the agenda for Year 9 - following on from sessions that students attended at Devonport Guildhall last week.
We are very grateful to all the employers who came in to meet our Year 10 students including Caroline Anderson, a firefighter, Sophie Hawken, a mechanical engineer, Plymouth Community Homes, Midas Construction, Willmott Dixon Construction, John Lee from Highways, Darren Hart, a strategic business manager in the NHS, Corporal Wayne Tutty and the marketing team from City College Plymouth.
Year 10 student Poppy said it was "really good".
"It really helps you think about what you'd like to do when you leave."
Fellow Year 10 student Michat said: "It's good to have careers events like this because you get to find out about all the different options that are out there."
