Year 10 Preparation for Work Day

19 June 2017

Dear Parent/Carer

Year 10 Preparation for Work Day: Thursday 22 June

I am writing to let you know about the above event that your child will be taking part in next week. This event will be delivered by Deloitte Consulting and will be an exciting opportunity for the pupils to engage in a number of activities that will help them begin to think about their route into post-16 education and beyond.

The pupils will take part in sessions about the following:

• Using careers software to identify areas of interest
• Interview skills
• Teamwork skills
• Presentation skills
• Understanding the new national landscape for apprenticeships including higher level apprenticeships to be accessed at age 18.

Due to the schedule for the day, the pupils may be dismissed from school slightly earlier, but not before 3pm.

I would encourage you to take the opportunity to have a discussion with your child about their plans and your views in this area; it would be really helpful in terms of helping them to be focused and prepared so that they get the most out of the day.

Thank you very much in advance for your support. If you have any questions about the day, do feel free to contact me by email or on 020 7502 4748.

Yours sincerely

Ray Boxall
Deputy Headteacher
