On Tuesday I took 10 year 8 students to the Ageas Bowl for a Future Finders event.
The event was hands on and interactive, with the aim of raising student aspirations.
The day consisted of the following sessions:
- Speed networking with up to 30 local business providers. Students worked in small groups and had the opportunity to question a number of business providers about their career choices and paths, qualifications and industries etc.
- BAE Systems and RAF Roadshow Looking at how ‘Waves’ are made.
- Team working & Communication workshop. Students worked in pairs; with one student having to describe an image from a picture and the other student having to draw it base on the verbal instructions being given. Students also looked at how we communicate and the importance of eye contact.
