On Tuesday 28th April and Friday 1st May, Lincoln Christ’s Hospital took Year 9 students off their normal timetable so that they could have two valuable careers experiences.
One of the experiences was working with LAGAT on Preparation for Employment. LAGAT brought a team with them, who worked with the students on an hourly rotation. Students were taught about:
• Youth Unemployment Statistics
• Communicating with employers by email
• Creating and completing a curriculum vitae, covering letter and application form
• Interview techniques and preparation
• Employer expectations
The second experience was just as exciting; students worked on “Sam’s Story”, a story about a young man who got into debt with a loan shark. Students were taught valuable money management skills.
The Year 9s were also introduced to speakers who educated them on Sixth Form, Apprenticeships and Universities. On a rotation basis they visited our Careers Fayre in The Old Hall and took part in some practical “Have a go” workshops.
We were really well supported by many local businesses and we are very grateful for their input into our very successful Year 9 Careers Day.
