Event description

Description

Teachers and careers professionals, help your students to develop the enterprise and employability skills that employers are looking for and increase their knowledge of the science industry.

This is an exciting 2 part programme benefitting Year 10 students.

•Part 1 - Activity Day

This interactive half day session will take place in school and it will be delivered or supported by one or more Science Industry Ambassadors.

Part 2 - Challenge Day

Following the Activty Day, schools will select students to take part in a challenge day to be held at an off site venue just after Easter. The challenge day will see the students engaging in an interactive enterprise challenge as well as receiving an employability skills workshop. Certificates will be awarded to all students and prizes to winning students.

Part 2 - Mock Assessment Day

Following the Activty Day, schools will select students part in a mock assessment day in the summer term, consisting of a mock interview, a pitch task similar to those typically used by employers and a business task. Four students will then be awarded a valuable work experience placement with a regional company.

This is a great opportunity to engage students who may be considering a career in science or for those who have little knowledge but would like to discover more about opportunities in science.

It will help schools to meet Gatsby Benchmark 5 ‘Encounters with employers and employees’ in a meaningful way as students and staff will have around 10 hours contact time with Ambassadors.
