Could you help to Year 7s to discover a whole range of possible future careers?

St Michael’s in High Wycombe is inviting business volunteers into the classroom for an hour on Tuesday 7th May from 11.40am to 12.40pm to be questioned about their careers by the students. We know from research that “young adults who recall four or more encounters with employers while at school are five times less likely to be NEET (not in education, employment or training) and earn on average 18% more than peers who recall no such activities” – so you’d be helping to set our students on the right path and give them an opportunity to speak to professionals in a formal setting.

There’s no need for you to prepare anything: students will have devised questions beforehand to help them understand what you do, why you do it and how you got there.

Logistics:

The format of the session:

· You will be paired with up to three other volunteers from different industry sectors

· Your group will be questioned by a class of 30 students for 30 minutes

· The volunteers then move to the next class for another 30 minute round of questions.

· There will be 5 classes running at the same time. The students won’t meet everyone, but they will hear from a range of careers.

Please get in touch if you are available. Arrival time would be 11.30 and you’d be free to go from around 12.45pm. We look forward to hearing from you.
