First ever 'Guess the Employer' event a big successPosted on: 05/05/2023
An 'amazing' and 'enlightening' morning at DGS today, thanks to many of our local employers who participated in our first ever 'Guess The Employer' event with our Year 7 students. Local employers spoke to our 300 strong Year 7 cohort about the world of work that awaits them in the future, with a view to broadening horizons, breaking gender stereotypes in the workplace and raising careers ambitions. From our pupils' feedback it looks like it was a success:
95% thought it was worthwhile
'I got a lot of information about different options apart from university'
'I learnt about many more options for jobs in the future and learnt about jobs I've never really thought about.'
'A fun time'
'I gained more knowledge on what employers are looking for when hiring and what it takes to get a job'
'Amazing' 'Fabulous' 'Informative' 'Fascinating' 'Awesome' 'Enlightening'
Huge thanks to all who took part!
