Fantastic LifeSkills session

Fantastic LifeSkills session-

Our year 9 students ventured to the Etihad Stadium to begin the first of their sessions on the fantastic LifeSkills programme created with Barclays. LifeSkills helps to give young people the employability skills they need to take their next step – whether that’s going straight into work, sixth form, college or university. The students work with a teacher and a group of business mentors from Barclays. The project is done in partnership with Barclays, Chrysalis Research and the Transformation Trust.

This first session focused on students gaining confidence and the motivation to look at how others market themselves via a CV. Students were asked to reflect on what personality, skills and abilities they have and how they can use these pursue their dream job. They interacted with the mentors really were and were able to challenge themselves. This was a great start to the course in an inspiring venue.
