Careers: Events


Teach First Visit - DHL

We have a series of events arranged via Teach First where DHL Volunteers are delivering Career-Focused Activities for different year groups. Today (Wednesday 3rd November 2021), 30 Year 9 students were able to learn about the world of Work and opportunities available in Logistics.  They learnt about the variety of different roles and what specifications they may need in terms of qualifications, both academic, non-academic and Personality Traits and Skills. It was a really engaging time (one activity was making a mode of transport with a piece of paper behind their backs), subsequently learning about all the modes of transports used in logistics with quite a few surprises!  The students took a lot from today’s  Careers Classroom Session.


May I draw your attention to the NCS – National Citizen Service programme which is being offered to Year 11 & 12 students from the local areas. This fantastic annual opportunity was missed by the present Year 12 students so is being offered out to them also but adhering to Restrictions, Places are Limited this year.

This Personal Development Programme will run over the Summer Period and there is a 2 or 3-week programme, depending on if you want to take up the Residential. Young people get the opportunity to undertake Team Challenges, meet new people and work on a Project which means something to them.  Students will leave with a Certificate and this evidence can be used on CVs and Personal Statements for University. Students can apply to be with their friends too.

The cost is a £50 Contribution and there are Bursaries if needed.

Please look at the link to an 8 minute video Information Clip which should tell you everything. -

Students can book their place on NCS by visiting: and click the ‘Register Now’ button.

Everything will be run under Covid-19 Guidelines but if you have a concern or further questions please contact NCS direct if you need any further information.
