Eleven of our Year 9 girls took part in Work Discovery Week Launch event at the Stadium of Light today. The event is held at the Stadium of Light annually to give learners an opportunity to find out about some of the many careers that are available to them. The day comprised of practical skills demonstrations, a careers fair and workshops. The girls had a go at some of the activities brought along by companies such as Caterpillar, Nissan and Liebherr. Titan the Robot was brought along by South Tyneside College and he gave a performance in the Stadium car park. This went down extremely well with the girls.
The group took part in workshops on how to present yourself to an employer and interview skills. The girls said that this was the most informative part of the day.
Learners really had their eyes opened to the types of opportunities available and they all said the day has given them lots to think about.
