Summerhill School

WEX (Virtual)

We are delighted to announced that Monday10th June – Friday 14th May 2021, will be dedicated to ‘My Week at Work’ to get Year 10 students to start thinking about their future aspirations and post school choices and careers. Careers education and preparation for the future underpins our whole school careers strategy, and I’m delighted to be able to share plans for a whole (VIRTUAL!) week dedicated to it with you. We ask where possible each student takes part in a minimum of two sessions per day. 

The school will link directly through the Oak National Academy, Barclays Life Skills, Speakers for Schools and other learning platforms where the sessions will be stored. Some registration is required, but all resources are free and your child can do more than two lessons per day if they want to. The resources have been set via our learning platform Show My Homework.

The tasks will give your child a real good understanding into the world of work and prepare them for a future career in the creative industry. There’s some fantastic and very engaging sessions planned!

The week will run during alongside any pre-arranged virtual lessons or homework tasks – but virtual lessons will include an element of careers guidance or insight (where possible).  

As well as these main tasks - students may wish to tune into the ‘Learn Live’ platform on Tuesday 9th June at 1pm where industry experts will be running a session on careers in the Creative and Digital sector. Students can access this via www.learnliveuk.com 

We hope you can support your child in taking part in ‘My Week at Work’ and encourage them each day to take part in the virtual learning activities. Please do not hesitate to get in touch if you require further information about our careers related learning activity.
