On 14th October 2021, Mrs van den Berghen, Advice and Guidance Mentor at The Piggott School organised the Year 10 Careers Day with over 200 students in attendance.  Each tutor group listened to 5 sessions of 30-minute presentations from various employers to broaden their horizons and get them thinking about their future career pathways.

This helps to provide our students with an up-close and personal view of a wide variety of jobs.  They get to have a very insight into the world of work, learning about employability skills, values, ways to develop themselves and linking their school subjects to individual careers.

Gatsby Benchmark 5 – Encounters with Employers - Gatsby define a meaningful encounter as ‘one in which a student has an opportunity to learn about what work is like or what it takes to be successful in the workplace.’
