Aspirations Week 2016
Year 5 and 6 experienced two days working with Connex Careers looking at career opportunities, examining what areas of employment are ‘out there’ and which might appeal. The children took part in a number of workshop activities which they found fun and interesting with a final session where the children had to present a business plan and present it to two employers who acted out a ‘Dragon’s Den’ scenario.
The children also visited the Jaguar/ Land Rover factory in Halewood where they saw the robot technology in action and experienced the different job roles on site and toured the working factory as they built the Evoque.
Finally Year 6 visited the Willmott Dixon building site on Great Homer Street to see how the building industry works and the many career opportunities there are through construction. The children were shown he real jobs of electricians, plumbers, plasterers etc alongside the planners and architects work.
