Speed Dating with Industry
Today, our Year 9 students enjoyed meeting with representatives from a wide spectrum of industry. Alisa, from NYBEP, organised a varied range of careers to be discovered by pupils from the police to becoming a computer game designer.
Students were put into teams and had to ‘Interview’ prospective employers and colleges about their roles in industry. Questions ranged from the different types of qualifications needed, to the typical day of someone who deals with 999 calls.
Mrs Wadsworth, Head of PSHCEe, wishes to thank all those involved and was very pleased when guests commented on the positive atmosphere and excellent behaviour. This was part of an annual event and it is invaluable as part of the school’s careers programme.
Stocks and Shares
‘Stocks and Shares Day’
The fast paced world of the London Stock Exchange hit students at Holy Family at full force! Money was won and lost, and there was one bankruptcy!
NYBEP facilitated a brilliant day with students really immersing themselves in the world of commerce and enterprise. ‘The Wolves of Wall Street’ were the victorious team with a profit of close to £500,000! Mrs Wadsworth, Head of PSHCEe, has approached the team for financial advice.
The pictures really sum up how much the students enjoyed the experience.
