It was great to be with the 6th Formers from The Ferrers School, Rushden Academy and Huxlow School yesterday.
These 3 schools work together to create a post 16 learning experience - The East Northants College.
Yesterday was a ‘Futures Day’ for the students and I thrilled to be part of it.
For half an hour, 24 of their students joined me for a video session on 'Employability'.
We looked at:
• How to develop a network of people who can help them.in the sectors that interest them.
•How to develop a network of people who can help them.
• Ideas on how to use social media to connect and communicate with experienced professionals.
• Opportunities to use online learning and talks to create a bank of info that will go straight into their CV.
I’ve been delivering ‘open access’ webinars on Monday evenings and this was my first ‘school-specific’ online session.....and it was such fun.
All the pupils and staff were at their homes. Everyone logged in on time, and afterwards, I was able to send the session recording to those who asked for it.
Welcome to the new world!
