79 Year 7 pupils at Sir Herbert Leon Academy took part in four one-hour Employability Now sessions led by Worktree.
In post-session evaluation, the students gave an average score of 7.8 out of 10 for the statement ‘The session has made me committed to learning and want to achieve’. They gave 7 out of 10 for ‘The session made me confident making choices about my future work options’.
Interestingly, their responses to the question about ‘3 jobs I would like to do’ suggests that more than a third aspire to types of work which are extremely hard to obtain (see top ten below).
|Job type||Points given (3 for first choice, 2 for second choice, 1 for third choice)||%|
