EQUIPPING OUR FUTURES

Overview

A series of guided workshops which result in pupils, by the end of the day, having...

good interview technique, good form-filling skills, a good knowledge of their qualities & abilities,
a curriculum vitae, a template covering letter.

Format

Pupils visit each workshop in a carousell as a class; perhaps in form-groups.  Workshops are led by experienced professionals so that after lunch pupils can be walked-through the process of creating the documents that will support them through their working career.

Requirements

Workshop Areas: These would ideally be classrooms close to the central activity area where pupils can be guided through various tasks beofre moving on to the next workshop.

Computer Area: This would ideally be in the form of separate IT rooms so that each pupil can work on a computer as they are assisted in the creation of their Curriculum Vitae by teachers and facilitators.

Lunch & refreshments... for the facilitators and teaching staff to encourage discussion on arrival and during breaks.
