Year 8: World of Work Day

World of Work day introduces our students to Design, Production and Construction.

The students participate in teams around three competitions which help them to learn how these disciplines are applied in industry and at the same time highlight the importance of transferable skills in order to achieve desired results. The students are split in appropriate teams and are led by teachers, with business guests focused on illustrating where each student already has the beginnings of what’s needed for future success.



Working in teams.

Awareness of transferable skills.

Transferability of these skills into three different business disciplines.

The Year 9 students' ambition and lack of fear is to be commended and it is evident many of them have already focused on making money from their own ideas.
