National Careers Week at MPS


National Careers Week ran alongside our reading celebrations. The link between careers and literacy is undeniable so both were complementary to each other this week. We gave particular focus to careers on Thursday and Friday. 

Start logo

MPS students are on Start!

Thursday saw the launch of our students on Start. Learning Mentors and Heads of Year ran the Start session with students. Start is a careers platform that caters for all students. It helps them to make more informed decisions about future study and career options. There is a comprehensive source of information with a  personalised student experience and tracking capability. Students can use START from 11-18 and there will be some real advantages in having access to this platform. Some areas are just being finished, but even as it is, Start promises to be a benefit to our students in thinking about their future pathways and careers.  

Careers and our subjects

Many subjects also designed aspects of their Thursday or Friday lessons to feed in our careers celebrations this week. 

Art -  A talk from Leeds University about the creative arts industries.  Later in month there will be a talk on photography from the National Portrait Gallery and students will be able to meet Taylor Wessing 'virtually' - he won the 2020 photography prize

Science - Careers in Science

English - Future thoughts where students think about their skills and interests

PE  - Fancy being a sports writer? Students were asked to write about a sport they are passionate about. The top ten will then get a chance to interview a major sports star via Zoom.

French - Widening horizons - Students took a virtual tour of Paris and Quebec 

Maths - Careers in Maths

Careers fair

We also shared details of the NCD Careers fair. Students could visit the virtual event all week and there were an array of employers and virtual stands that could be visited to find out more about different organisations and careers.

It is lovely to see our students starting to think about what they would like to do in the future and even better that many are taking active steps in thinking about what they need to do achieve this.
