Thinking ahead to a bright future
Youngsters glimpsed into their futures at a special event designed to motivate, educate and communicate to them the importance of planning ahead.
Year eight students at Bridlington School spent the day preparing for their working futures, with the help of representatives from York St John, York and Hull Universities, at their annual careers day.
Headteacher Sarah Pashley said the event not only serves as a fun day for the students, but also help prepares them for the adult world
“Unlike in most schools, Bridlington School students start their GCSE courses at the beginning of Year 9 rather than at the beginning of Year 10.
“It is therefore really important that we work with our students in Year 8 to ensure they have the right information to make the best decisions for them in terms of the courses they take in Year 9 and beyond.”
Careers day, which took place on Tuesday, saw students take part ‘applications and interviews’ sessions, where the learnt how to prepare for and conduct themselves during job interviews.
