John Lewis enables Virtual School students to enjoy Career WorkOut

by | Feb 27, 2019 | News

Eight students from MK Virtual School, for young people in care, took part in a one-hour Career WorkOut session in John Lewis’ Community room. They met and interviewed seven diverse work guests.

Student feedback questionnaires indicate the following remarkable increases in confidence from before to after the session:

  • 67% increase in ‘I have a good idea of different jobs I could do in the world of work’
  • 43% in ‘I know what skills an employer will expect me to have when I start work’
  • 28% increase in ‘I know what job I want in future’.

One student wrote:  “I liked learning about the interviewees’ different roles in the work place and what to do and not to do.  Thank you so much!”
