Selected Year 10 pupils will visit Sutton Coldfield College to take part in the ‘Big Bang’ STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) workshop where pupils will undertake a number of activities with the overall objective of helping students recognise how the STEM subjects studies at school can lead to rich and varied career pathways.

All Year 10 pupils will have a mock interview with someone from the world of work in spring. Previous interviewers have come from ISS facility services and Lloyds Banking Group for example. This will involve the pupils having to choose from a list of provided live vacancies and creating a CV and relevant cover letter which will then be sent to their interviewer prior to the actual interview itself.  Pupils will then be assessed on their CV, cover letter and interview.

Selected Year 10 pupils will take part in a Business Walk as part of Birmingham Professional Services Week where students will have the chance to visit two professional sector businesses with a walking tour through Birmingham’s business district.

All Year 10 pupils will undertake work experience in July to provide them with a taste of the world of work. Pupils are expected to source a placement themselves and will therefore have to practise skills such as holding a professional telephone conversation, completing an application form and perhaps an interview. All of these attributes will be very useful for when the pupils are applying for further education and apprenticeship places in Year 11.
