Yesterday, Year 5 and Year 6 were invited to a careers’ fair at the Reach Free school. Before we went, the children decided which stalls they would like to visit and some key questions to ask. The children thought deeply about what they needed to know.
“What subjects do I need to study?”
“How much pressure is there?”
“How does it affect your mental health to work with sick people?”
The actual event was excellent with the children visiting all the stalls that were important to them and talking to the adults about the careers. They came away full of aspiration for their future and excited about the possibilities ahead of them.
