Careers
Talks


As part of our inspiring curriculum we are passionate about adding enrichment opportunities for all our pupils.  Alongside our '50 things', we are having careers days throughout the academic year. We feel these help broaden the children’s horizons, skills and thoughts about the future. Our careers talks have included a nurse, an engineer and the Chief Executive of our MAT with a banker, a hairdresser and the owner of a local manufacturing business to follow.

         

Mr Cunningham, Vice Chair of our LAC, visited us to talk to the children about different job opportunities within a bank. He explained savings and interest rates, loans and mortgages. The children were asked to choose between a £20 note and a £20 bag of coins. They realised how much £20 of coins would weigh in their pocket or purse!
