Worktree Employee Encounter

Our Year 7, 8, 9, 10 and 11 had an exciting opportunity to meet with employees from various workplace environments, to talk about pathways into the world of work.  They met with entrepreneurs, business owners and apprentices from industries such as leisure and tourism, construction and gaming.  The online platform allowed our students and staff to ask lots of relevant questions.  These encounters are vital in giving our students the information for a world of work that awaits!



Sovini Housing Assembly & Visit

A big thank you to Sovini Housing for coming into school and delivering an assembly on the apprenticeships they offer at Level 2 and Level 3.  We talked about the workplace environment and the skills our students need to have in order to make themselves attractive to employers.  Chloe, Caitlin and Will were fantastic with the students, who in turn were really engaged in the opportunities to work as an apprentice in the many career paths on show.








Volunteer It Yourself!

Our Year 10 Students took part in a fantastic community project called Volunteer It Yourself (VIY).  The students gave 15 hours of volunteer time to up-cycle a disused container into a changing room for the Bootle Bucks FC inclusion team.  The volunteer hours also helped the students gain a City & Guilds Level 1 qualification in the construction field.

Well done to the students who took part.  You were an absolute credit to the school.IMG_4990.jpgIMG_4971.jpg

After the project was completed, some of the students had the opportunity to meet ex-Liverpool player, Jamie Carragher, who took time to ask them about the project.

A fantastic careers project!IMG_4976.jpgPXL_20231006_111442454.MP.jpg
