The week before half term, Year 7s took part in their first employer-led careers workshop at Childwall Sports and Science Academy.
All Form groups spent the morning in the company of Catherine, who represented Dell Technologies and introduced the pupils to the possibilities of using technology to create a more sustainable world. Pupils took on the challenge set by Dell to come up with their own ideas to utilise tech to improve their local neighbourhood and presented their enterprises to Dell managers.
At Childwall, we encourage all our pupils to develop key employability skills and explore the many opportunities open to them, and last week was all about being enterprising, creative, working in teams, adapting to a new learning environment and most of all being brave by trying something new. At the workshop, one pupil commented, “I learned that it doesn’t matter what you want to create as long as you are confident in it."
