Event description

Description

This event is aimed at Year 6 students who will be spending two days at Bedford Academy in preparation for when they join us in September. As part of day 2 we would like them to meet and speak to representatives from business's, universities and colleges.

We ran this event for the first time last year and it was one of our most impactful careers events to date. Delegate feedback last year suggested that students could be better prepared, we have taken this on board and have built this into the day.

As part of this we hope to expand students perception of career and open their eyes to possabilities they have not yet heard of or career paths that they have a stereotypical perception of, perhaps linked to gender, etnicity or social class and written off already!

The event will begin at 9.20 / 9.30 when the first 100 students will come to our main hall. They will spend There will be a table and chair for each delegate with 10 chairs for students. The students will have each prepared a question beforehand and once they have all asked their question they will have the opportunity to guess what the visitor does. They will then have approx ten minutes to to find out more, (feel free to bring photos, probs or a quick activity if you wish!) Once the first 15 minutes is up students will rotate to the next delegate. They will have an hour in the hall in total which will be enough time for them to meet 3 or four delegates.

After this we will have a refreshment break and there will be the opportunity for delegates to network prior to repeating the process with the remaining 100 students.
