Y9 Virtual Employability Workshop with Computacenter
Y9 enjoyed an informative virtual insight into Computacenter’s business and career pathways through a business simulation challenge and networking session with their business leaders
This week, 20 girls from Year 9 took part in an exciting virtual employability skills workshop run for us by the Early Talent Team and a host of generous business volunteers at Computacenter. We were given an overview of the business and completed some ice breaker activities before forming mini business groups to choose a product to develop for market. An exciting wearable watch was chosen, and teams competed to develop pricing, branding and target marketing strategies before designing a presentation of their ideas for a panel of judges. All teams were brilliant, with the judges commenting that our pupils had an excellent approach to problem solving and teamwork. Congratulations to the winning team of Zara, Amelia, Grace and Kathlyn! The day also involved a networking session in which pupils chatted with business leaders about their career paths, current roles and the choices they had made along the way. It was a very interesting and informative day and enjoyed by all. Many thanks to our friends at Computacenter for their generous support with this fantastic event.
