YEAR 7 students at Sir Frederick Gibberd College have been practising vital skills for a life of work after education. A host of new job advertisements have been created to offer students a chance to get a taste of employment.
Taking on roles from librarians to playground monitors, pupils went through the processes of applications and interviews to procure their new roles. Eight students even joined the student council after writing their own manifestos and appealing to their fellow classmates for votes.
Head teacher, Dee Conlon explained “The idea is for students to experience the process of applying for a role and being shortlisted for an interview; just like we do in the real world. They will be contributing to their school and giving back to their immediate community by taking on these roles.”
