BURNT Mill Academy (BMA) has hosted its first ever Careers Day for Year 11 students.
Suited and booted in business attire, students from BMA spend a whole day dedicated to their desired future careers. They took part in mock interviews, were given the best tips for their CV’s, and listened to professionals from various industries talk about their job, their qualifications and how they managed to pursue their career.
BMA’s Assistant Head Teacher, Francis Collins, is eager for the students to put as much thought as they can into their future, and which career path they would like to go down, as he thinks it’s important to think ahead as early as possible.
He states: “The day was a huge success. The students approached the interviews as if they were real. They were asked about their chosen career paths, their hobbies and other plans for the future.
“We offer students lots of opportunities. Because of our high expectations and relentless focus on that, students rise to it and aim high.”
During the evening, parents were invited to meet with the sixth form and college representatives to find out more about the options open to their children.
A similar event is planned for the current Year 10 students.
