A week of digital, employer focused careers and work-related activities for pupils in secondary schools
Careers Wales is pleased to invite classes of years 8, 9 and 10 pupils to a week of online employer activities linked to the Curriculum for Wales Areas of Learning and Experience (AoLEs).
The week-long event aims to:-
• Raise the career aspirations of young people;
• Influence pupils career plans and subject choices;
• Introduce pupils to employers who can inspire, inform and motivate them;
• Help pupils realise their career goals;
• Inform pupils that they can achieve their career ambitions whatever their background;
• Address topics including Welsh language, rurality and equality.
Each day there will be six employer focused sessions, including employer challenges, live Q&A sessions, employer presentations and videos all themed around one of the six AoLEs and showcasing a range of employers from across Wales. For a summary timetable click here.
When you register for the event, Careers Wales will provide a pupil journal for you to download (this will enable pupils to make the most of each session) and a teacher guide to explain how to access each of the sessions.
Joining the sessions
Live sessions will be available on Microsoft Teams and pre-recorded sessions will be hosted on the Careers Wales Vimeo channel (click the link). Links to all of the live and pre-recorded sessions will be provided in the teachers’ guide.
To download the digital pupil journal and take part in the interactive quizzes and polls that support many of the sessions, pupils will need access to a device. If you want to view the live sessions on a phone or tablet, you may need to download the Microsoft Teams app.
You can take part in the whole week or just individual days or sessions.
