My Week of Work - 8th June to 12th June 2020               

A free programme called “My Week of Work” has been set up with lots of resources and is an initiative which allows school pupils to be able to gain an insight into the world of work from the comfort of their own home despite the lockdown. 

 

Oak Academy, Learn Live and The Careers & Enterprise Company have worked in partnership to create a whole week’s worth of content aimed at preparing young people for the world of work.

 

To gain an insight into the construction, health & social care, engineering and manufacturing, renewables and energy or creative and digital sectors, please visit the following links and  work at your own leisure - www.thenational.academy and https://learnliveuk.com/my-week-of-work/

 

Should your child wish to participate, please drop Mrs O'Brien, Careers Advisor an email via obrien.a@harriscofeacademy.co.uk so that they can be supported during the “Week of Work”.

 

 

Students from Harris CofE Academy have benefited from Speakers for Schools talks in previous academic years and now can access these from home.  Below is an example of upcoming speakers and we recommend you check them out.  More will be listed on the website.  Talks will take place at 10.00 and 14.00, Monday to Friday.
