My Week of Work Live Event

As part of our commitment to providing our students with outstanding careers education, information and guidance (CEIAG), we would like to invite our Year 9, 10 and 11 students to participate in ‘My Week of Work’ which is taking place from Tuesday 9th June.

The Careers and Enterprise Company, Oak Academy and Learn Live have worked in partnership to create a whole week’s worth of content aimed at preparing young people for the world of work. Students will be able to choose from five key economic sectors in which to gain insight. They will hear from employers, learn about the businesses and complete virtual work tasks. The content has been developed in partnership with employers, school leaders and careers education experts.

Many employers and businesses have generously given their time to take part in live Q&A sessions on the Learn Live website. This is an incredible opportunity for students to interact in a live Q&A session with a range of these employers.

In addition to completing their usual school work, we are asking that students take the opportunity to choose at least one session to engage with. Students should find out more about the sessions, choose and register for a session using one of the links in the table below. The same link is where the live session will take place, on the day and time indicated.
