30th June saw Park High School run its second Preparing for Future Opportunities day (PFO) with our Year 10 students, the morning was a carousel of events. Groups had an experience in three sessions, involving Interviews, employability skills and a careers fair.
We had a variety of employers involved in the day including:
Year 10 looked incredibly professional in their smart clothes and were very confident with the visitors.
Feedback from the employers:
“a great event, the students were enthusiastic and I spoke to a large number of them”
“students were fantastic! They looked professional, acted in a professional manner and were extremely engaged in conversation.”.
“ I really enjoyed the PFO day and thought the children had great energy. I was impressed by the amount of activities and achievements all the children had at such a young age”.
Work Experience 2016
Year 10 were out on Work Experience from the 4th – 8th July at a huge range of businesses across London, Employer comments have been fantastic with students being offered summer or part time jobs and the opportunity to return back when they need more experience.
Work Experience has helped them to learn skills in:
– Understanding of the business world and what it does
– Ability to travel
Feedback from students alike have been extremely positive. Now they are better prepared for their journey into Year 11.
