On the evening of 7th May the Careers and Enterprise Team hosted a Progression Pie and Pea Evening for parents and carers of Y7 and Y8 students. Parents and Carers are the key influences in our students lives and we want to equip them with the information and knowledge to help them support their children to make the most informed choices.
Thank you to all the parents who came and contributed to a really positive evening. Refreshments were provided by our brilliant catering team in the form of pies, mushy peas and mint sauce with unlimited tea and coffee. There was a brief overview of the current skills agenda within education as well as information about students post 16 options and the role of the Careers and Enterprise Team. As this event grows and develops we are hoping that parents will also help educate and support other parents with developing their knowledge around these issues especially when helping their children make key choices.
We got some great feedback from the parents and would hope to hold these events 2 – 3 times a year with the next one concentrating on our post 16 providers. If you could not make it or want to attend the next one, please contact a member of the Careers and Enterprise Team.
