Today we were delighted to host 26 volunteers from Vertex Pharmaceuticals on their company-wide 'Global Day of Service’ day. The Year 11 cohort each received a 25-minute mock interview focused on post-16 options and future aspirations. The volunteers asked a number of questions to help the students talk about their future plans and what they might need to do to succeed. This discussion covered many post-16 options such as sixth form, college or an apprenticeship.
Activities such as this are vital to careers education and very much help our students to have a clearer vision of their goals after leaving school. The volunteers were very impressed with the students’ professionalism, emotional intelligence and dedication to their future goals. Well done gentlemen!
