Careers Day for Years 7 and 8
At the end of last term Year 7 and 8 enjoyed a day of workshops with Kirsty Bell of Grays Careers (www.grayscareers.com). Kirsty has worked for some of the world's most prestigious companies in senior recruitment roles. Years 7 and 8 spent their time identifying their own strengths and weaknesses and considered how their weaknesses could be improved. They discussed the careers of family members and friends, focusing on the skills they’ve needed and their academic qualifications. They also started to consider how CVs are built. It was a very enjoyable and thought provoking day, with plenty of useful discussion.
