National Careers Week

National Careers Week

From 4th – 9th March Students across all year groups at PCS were fortunate enough to be involved in an exciting series of workshops to heighten their awareness of a variety of career fields.

National Careers Week is targeted at improving the level of careers education in schools and colleges, with evidence showing at government level that this is an area that needs improvement in order to ensure that future generations will benefit from quality, meaningful interactions that will help them to understand the links between courses, skills and the pathways they open up.

We welcomed representatives from the NHS, Appenticeships in Sussex and Plumpton STEM who shared their knowledge and expertise with our students. Some students were lucky enough to pay a visit to Cheesemur Building contractors in Lewes.

The week also saw the launch of the hugely successful Tenner challenge, with students planning their entrepreneurial ideas to raise make as much money as they can from a starting point of £10.00

A huge thank you to all of our supporters in the community who gave up their time for our students and to Mrs Carr and Ms Newman for organising such a successful week.
