“Routed and Ready” workshops
On Wednesday 13 June, Year 8 students from Huxlow Science College engaged in a series of “Routed and Ready” workshops aimed at enhancing their knowledge and understanding of prospective career paths for them in the future. Students actively participated in a range of sessions that allowed them to explore a variety of job sectors and roles, as well as the qualifications required to access these careers. Activities ranged from how students can plan their next steps into their chosen careers to how they can market their skills and qualities to increase their prospects for employment.
Responses from students include:
- “I think that Year 8 is the perfect time to start these activities because we are very open minded at our age”
- “I enjoyed the career cards because it gave me lots more options of what I want to do and I found out about new jobs that I would never have found out about”
