It is great to see the interaction between the pupils and employers. The pupils are learning valuable life skills in communication by the questions they ask and listening to the answers given. Even shaking hands and introducing themselves will help their social skills and give them ideas of what jobs they may like to do […]
The feedback from the students and staff from the day has been fantastic again, so thank you for all your hard work and effort. I had virtually all new staff today, 18 on the day who hadn’t experienced Worktree before and they were really impressed with your session. I think the pupils engaged incredibly well […]
The range and number of guests participating was very pleasing. I found the event to be well organised and managed by Worktree, students were participating and behaviour was good.
This gives students the opportunity to chat to members of the public in an informal setting. They develop the skills of communication to unknown adults, personal presentation, e.g. handshakes and eye contact, and question styles.
I liked how the volunteer guests treated our students with complete respect and as adults. It was well run and fast moving so our students remained interested. I was apprehensive about the session as I didn’t think our students would engage well but they did and it was really fantastic – the best careers session […]
The students were genuinely engaged throughout the session and demonstrated excellent levels of maturity and interest. I saw them develop and grow to young adulthood before my eyes!
I liked how Career WorkOut took the students out of their comfort zone.
In the Career WorkOut session I enjoyed looking at the children who I teach. It helps me to guide them through the subject (science) to school them were it fits into the outside world. It was good to see some of the shy ones asking and answering questions too.
Parents have picked up on the value of the Career WorkOut sessions we’ve run for all students this year. Our recent parental survey results have just come in and there has been a significant increase in parents’ rating of careers advice – up 7% on last year’s survey.
Can I just say how brilliant Career Workout 5o has been and we have had so many compliments from visitors about the students and school.
