Ask The Professional Event:
During the autumn term the careers department has run the Ask the Professional event along with launching the work experience programme for Year 12 & Year 10 students.
Ask the Professional gives students the opportunity to question employers and further and higher education outreach teams on what their job/ career /course entails. This year we had a range of professionals from Renishaw to Nationwide Crash Repair Centres as well as educational establishments including the University of Gloucestershire and the Royal Agricultural University. We also had six alumni who were happy to pass on the knowledge they had gained since leaving Archway. Students were able to spend 10 minutes with each professional, providing them with a good insight into the professionals’ field. Feedback from students was positive, and it proved a useful and enjoyable exercise for them.
The feedback from the professionals was that our students are attentive, inquisitive and they had all enjoyed their encounter with our students.
The work experience programme was launched for Year 12 & Year 10. This is an invaluable week for students where they have a first-hand experience of the workplace.
Dates for work experience weeks are:
Year 12 Monday 10th February – Friday 14th February
Year 10 Monday 13th July – Friday 17th July
