Year 10 students had a fantastic day on Friday 30 April learning about different jobs and roles in a careers activity day at the end of their two weeks of exams. Divided into five groups, each group also stretched their research skills, team work and collaboration as well as presentation skills, which included making a film.
Each group was tasked with learning about the product chain, from design concept through to manufacture, distribution and marketing, and finding out about the various jobs and roles involved. The diverse range of products included Apple iPhone, North Face jacket, Itsu Sushi, a Mini Cooper and L’Oreal shampoo and conditioner.
The groups threw themselves into the tasks with gusto producing some excellent, amusing and very creative films, which were presented to a panel of judges at the end of the day.
Well done to all of the teams. The judges had a very difficult task choosing a winner, especially given the very high quality of all the films, in the end deciding on the North Face team, in part because it responded to the brief most closely. Thank you to Mrs Chambers and Mr Kellaway for organising such an enjoyable way to learn about the wide range of careers and opportunities for students to choose from.
