Year 9's Careers Quest Day
Year 9 enjoyed our first Careers Quest day on Thursday 16th January. It was a really informative day with EBP and 7 guest employers from Thames Water, Laverstoke Park, Naomi House, Drawings by Lucy, Gillete (P&G), Hampshire Hospital Foundation Trust and Standard Life. Some of our presenters were ex Testbourne students so it was great to welcome them back.
Students enjoyed a carousel of workshops throughout the day which included team- building engineering tasks, using maths skills in an agricultural context and diagnosing a medical condition from blood test results, MRIs and CT scans. It was a great opportunity to see how the subjects studied at school are important in the workplace. It was lovely to see students develop their understanding of employability skills and the personal qualities that are valued by employers.
