Don Valley Academy Employability Skills Day
What is an Employability Skills Day?
Students take part in different engaging activities with different business representatives within school. The activities will have been created by yourselves and will be industry specific. The purpose of the day will be to showcase career journeys and current opportunities within your sector through a brief discussion with students. They will then take part in your activity. The delivery of these activities is usually run throughout the course of the school day. You will see students on a carousel basis with other business representatives. You may see between 5 and 6 different groups of students for 50-60 minutes per session.
Why should I support one?
Whilst students may be aware of your industry, they might not fully understand the different career paths they could take or the job opportunities available. Discussions with employers allows them to gain an insight in to how you got there and what you do on a daily basis. Helping to raise their aspirations and awareness of potential future careers within the Borough. The activities they take part in also help to highlight the different transferable skills needed within the workplace.
Benefits for students:
- Engaging activities which help students think about transferable skills
- Raises aspirations and awareness of potential career pathways
- First-hand experience of the work place from an employee
- Encounters with employers giving opportunity to ask questions
