Careers

It's been a busy term for Careers and Guidance at Conisborough College. We kicked off the year with the launch of the Envision Programme for the second Year 10 cohort. Sixteen students attended the launch to start the 13-week inter-school competition across Lewisham.

The inter-school competition requires each team to run an awareness-raising and fundraising project for their chosen charity in their school. Team Reverb, chose 'The Single Homeless Project (SHP), a homeless charity that uses music to support vulnerable young adults. The students completed their awareness challenge, by delivering a series of assemblies to raise awareness of the SHP and they did themselves proud.  Team Reverb have been receiving support from a dedicated team of business mentors from Amber Infrastructure.

Team Reverb attended several business meetings with their Amber Infrastructure mentors, in their offices in London Bridge where they received practical coaching on public speaking.

The month of March started off with the celebration of National Careers and Apprenticeship Week.  The week was packed with activities to engage and inform students about Post 16 options including apprenticeships and different STEM roles.
Assemblies were delivered to discuss the importance of developing 'transferrable skills' as one of the keys to academic success and boosting employability opportunities in the future.

URBAN SYNERGY

Also this term, Year 9 students attended an inspirational Urban Synergy Role Model in STEM Seminar at Refinitiv, in Canary Wharf. 70 students had the privilege of meeting a wide range of professionals, including Engineers, Project Managers, Lawyers, a CEO and many more.
Students learned about different careers and job roles; and received invaluable advice from a panel of successful professionals on steps they can use in their daily practice and in school to help them achieve their academic or career goals.  Students left feeling uplifted and motivated to work hard to pursue their career dream.

"I want to go into project management because it sounds so interesting working on many different projects at one time. I now know what I need to do to achieve this".

We have some exciting plans going forward that we are excited to share with you, so look out for more amazing careers related stories in our next issue.
