On 16th July KS4 and KS5 joined together for our first Preparing For Adulthood day!
Students experienced a range of activities all focussed on life as a young adult. The Year 10s and Year 13s worked on their CAREER ACTION PLANS whilst the other year groups looked at different post 16 and post 19 options as well as possible career choices. They were also encouraged to think of the issues they may need to overcome in order to achieve their outcome. We were also joined by Rahul Toory – an ex Wilson Stuart student – who came in to give a presentation about College and the working world. As a VOCA and wheelchair user he was an inspirational role model. Students also explored their personal skills and qualities and discussed appropriate interview techniques. They got a chance to “role play” interviews as well. Our final session was RSE (Relationship and Sex Education). Groups were divided at their appropriate level and some worked in single sex groups. Their level of maturity throughout the day was fantastic and the way they worked together made the staff incredibly proud.
Talking of the staff I would like to publically thank all who were involved for their hard work, enthusiasm and commitment to the students in their care.
