Year 9 students (age 13-14 years) at St. Michael’s Catholic School, are about to choose their GCSEs and take their first steps towards potnetial career paths. We are looking for employers/employees from a range of industries to give one hour of their time to inspire and provide an insight into why certain subjects are essential or can be useful for different careers.
We would like you to speak about:
– your own career journey: why/how you chose your particular profession
– the subjects you studied and why you chose them, including a bit about the actual process of making your decision
– the challenges and rewards in your career
– perhaps some funny anecdotes to make the talk easier for young people to relate to

Your presentation will be approx 25 minutes long and repeated to another year 9 class of 30, one talk following the other. It would be good to build in some time for questions.
Timings:
The 2 First Steps sessions will run on:
1) Tuesday 8th January 2019: arrival 11.30am for 11.40am start (4 employers needed)
2) Tuesday 5th February 2019: arrival 11.30am for 11.40am start (6 employers needed)

Please let me (Monika Grosch, Careers and Work Related Coordinator) know which one you could attend.
