Y10 Students Dress to Impress
Y10 students from Stocksbridge High School took part in the annual Dress to Impress day held at school on Wednesday 25 May. This annual event supports and prepare Year 10 students being 'Dressed to Impress' and is a good preparation for their two weeks work experience at the end of June. The day is also an opportunity to support their development and ideas around career aspirations and the world of work.
The day was supported by college tutors and local employers coming into school to take part in mock interview situations. The exercise is an invaluable experience for students by helping them with any forthcoming interviews for work experience, employment, apprenticeships and further education. Students were asked to come appropriately dressed in smart clothes for the day.
Just like any interview, students will receive feedback and hopefully this will give advice and information on 'what went well' and how to improve further for their next interview.
As part of enrichment, all Stocksbridge High School Y10 students will spend two weeks out of school on work experience at the end of June. The students have been encouraged to contact local businesses and organisations personally to seek the opportunity of work experience in the different types of employment sectors including engineering, retail, IT, sports and leisure, hair and beauty.
The school is keen to promote relationships with local businesses and encourage partnership around any opportunities for potential work experience for our students in the future.
