Employability sessions develop students' key skills
Year 8, 9 and 10 students had the opportunity to learn about employability skills in January when they took part in some fun, interactive careers sessions in the LRC.
Delivered by Kate Sealby, Careers Advisor for West Sussex County Council, the sessions were offered to selected students so that they could start to think about their skills and strengths and how these could be applied to future pathways.
Students took part in activities which explored the differences between strengths and skills, and how these link to different careers and learning pathways. They also considered their own skills and strengths and how to articulate these, using real-life examples, and what skill or strength they might need to work on further.
Mrs Coomber, Careers Advisor at THS, said: “The employability skills sessions were informative, fun and interactive with great levels of participation. The students had some good discussions about skills and strengths, and from the feedback we received, they found the experience to be positive, many requesting further skills-based activities.
