Careers Talks

We are passionate about adding enrichment opportunities for all our pupils as part of our inspiring curriculum. Alongside our ’50 things’, we are having careers days throughout the academic year. We feel these help broaden the children’s horizons, skills and thoughts about the future. We have already welcomed two visitors into school to talk about their current and past careers.

The children have met Keith Hollins our very own CEO of SUAT and Mr Rukas who is on our Local Academy Council and also a nurse. We have a police officer, paramedic, a banker, vet and three chaps from a local manufacturing business that are already booked for this term.

 

On Monday 26th April, we had a careers talk from Mrs Walker’s nephew who is an officer in the Royal Marines. He joined us via Teams to tell us about life as a Royal Marine Commando and why that was the career has he chosen. We learned all about the training that has to be completed to become a Royal Marine and what life is like on a daily basis. He was leaving the day after to embark on a 6 month tour on HMS Defender but due to security purposes, he wasn’t able to tell us where he was going or what he was doing… but he did mention Pirates! The children has prepared some fantastic questions such as:

  • What is the food like on board the ship?”
  • “What do the badges on your uniform mean?”
  • “How long did it take to train to become an officer?”
  • “Who is your favourite Aunty?” Haha!

You could hear a pin drop in the classrooms whilst Jacob was talking and the children loved every minute! Jacob said that when he is back from his tour, he will come and visit our schools with some of his troop! We can’t wait!
