Connect Education and Business are now working in partnership with Steps Ahead Training to deliver their Steps 2 Success programme in 5 Academy Transformation Trust primary schools located in Thetford and Mildenhall areas. We will be working with 570 year 5 and 6 pupils throughout the academic year. The programme is aimed at raising aspirations and building confidence in personal skills and qualities, as well as learning more about employability skills.
Year 6 pupils will get involved in activities that are focused on their ideas about what they want to do in the future, as well as learning about the world of work and the different career choices they may consider. One of their workshops gives the pupils a chance to test out their communication skills and teamwork where they guess the jobs of the guest employers.
Year 5 pupils will work in teams to improve confidence in their own individual characteristics and identify personal skills. They will complete an enterprise challenge before the winning teams from the heats attend the enterprise final which will be held in March 2017 at Iceni Academy, Methwold.
Please look at our Ambassador opportunities if you would like to be involved in the "guess the Job" workshops.
