9 Coaching for Success
36 students in Year 9 have participated in a Speed Networking Session as part of the Coaching for Success programme. The aim of the programme is to provide students with an insight into ‘the world of work’, raise their aspirations, improve confidence, promote achievement and develop networking skills.
Students met with various mentors from different businesses looking at the job roles within their organisation. Students also looked at the importance of developing their strengths and working upon weaknesses. As a result of this students were able to set themselves short/long-term goals and planned how they were going to achieve them.
The day was very successful and the students gained a great deal from the experience.
