Primary Promise

 

ESLA’S ‘FUTURES GATEWAY’ CAREER PROGRAMME REACHES OUT TO PRIMARIES

In the biggest event and the only one of its kind in the North West, ESLA’s annual Careers Fair welcomed just under 400 local primary school children to make sure individual advice and careers guidance starts early in South Liverpool.
 
This unique opportunity to meet 43, local and national employers and educational providers forms just one aspect of the Academy ‘Futures Gateway’ Programme. Our careers promise is to ensure our students are guided into Further Education, Higher Level Apprenticeships or employment in order to fully achieve their, ambitions, aspirations hopes and dreams.
Students started the day with a presentation launch, a fun quiz aimed at engaging them in the career research process followed by activities to actively involve children as young as 7 in the rich and varied opportunities open to them in their future. The day provided them with the opportunity to explore education, training and career ideas by engaging face to face with exhibitors and this approach proved to be a huge success. There was a real buzz in the fair throughout the day, so much so we had to work hard to get children away from the stands and back on their coaches!

Take up for the day was huge, with 800 students wishing to join us for the day. To ensure we keep our primary careers promise, our Careers and Employability Manager Tony Murphy along with some 6th formers will be visiting local primary schools in the coming months to ensure the ‘Futures Gateway’ careers programme reaches out to all 800 as they deliver a number of hands on career workshops and talks.

 

OUR OWN YEAR 11 AND 6TH FORM STUDENTS ARE ALSO MAKING IMPORTANT DECISIONS ABOUT THEIR FUTURE

 
So it was essential to ensure local providers of apprenticeships, training and volunteering supported the event. We were pleased to welcome a number of universities who provided real insight into the options available at this level. Local colleges and training providers were at hand to ensure full understanding of the variety of opportunities for all interests wider than the traditional academic route. It was great to welcome such a wide range of organisations offering essential advice.
