Year 10 Speed Networking

As part of our careers programme, twenty employers from different sectors across Lancashire spent a productive morning alongside our Year 10 pupils as part of our first ‘Speed Networking’ event.  The aim of the session was to provide our pupils with meaningful employer encounters and the opportunity to ask professionals a variety of questions about careers, labour market information, employability skills and pathways.  Their findings were recorded in their ‘Speed Networking’ log books.   Our pupils were organised in groups of 5 and moved on a carousel basis every 5 minutes.  This event will assist them in thinking about their post 16 choices and the skills and traits they will require in order to be successful in their ambitions.
