Hello from Careers,
We hope you are keeping well. We have an exciting series of careers events coming up next week. My Week of Work, running all next week sees careers lessons from the Oak National Academy and Learn Live events in which you can ask employers about their work and why they love it.
These sessions will help you to understand how to promote yourself to employers, more about different kinds of business and what employers are looking for in their new recruits.
Every student should try to access at least one Oak National Academy lesson and one Learn Live session, if possible. Please use this link to register https://learnliveuk.com/my-week-of-work/
Once you have done this, please email Careers@smestow.org to inform the school that you have registered.
You can access the sessions that you feel are most relevant to you, but if you have to choose between a Learn Live session and an Oak Academy lesson because their times clash, it is best to prioritise Learn Live. This because the employers are only available to question during the sessions and the Oak Academy lessons are available to access at any time.
There is more detail on the following pages.
Please let us know what sessions you have accessed and how useful they were by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
You can also use this email address to ask any other careers questions you have.
Please keep in touch and let us know how you are getting on.
