World of Work 2021
Due to work experience week not being run this year Balfour Beatty, Heineken, nMite, HWGTA and Sequani kindly agreed to come into school and offer practical, work-based activities for all of our Y11 pupils.
Balfour Beatty – Pricing the Job
Pupils were taken through the process of pricing up a job using relevant tools, calculating the area of the job, pricing materials and calculating the quote for the job.
Heineken – Technical Training & Work
Two apprentices will go through their route to deciding on taking on a job and training with Heineken, working with specialist equipment and have a practical scenario with a robot arm.
Hereford & Worcester Group Training – Design & Make Project
Pupils designed & made a vehicle that needed to manoeuver around an obstacle course.
NMite – Engineering Challenge
The students had an introduction into engineering through a designing challenge. They were guided through the engineering designing process in order to develop ideas for a provided customer request. This activity aims to provide an answer to the question “What does an engineer do?” and introduce the students to the NMITE pedagogy.
Sequani – Getting to Know Yourself
An interactive session to help pupils to uncover some details about their personality. A personal profile can be taken away that may help with future career choices.
