C24 Virtual Work Experience

I am excited to say we are having our first Virtual Work Experience day at XP and XP East tomorrow 8th July. This will be for all our year 10 students at both school including the ones unable to attend at the moment, so a fully inclusive event. We have been lucky enough to have the opportunity to have a full day of employer based presentations and workshops. Students from XP East who are at home will be sent a link and Miss Parker and myself will support them through the day and the students in school will be supported by staff. This is an amazing opportunity to look through the lens of work with some key sectors onboard for the experience. As Careers Lead for both schools, I am super excited to be planning a range of Further Education and Careers opportunities for the next academic year so please watch this space for updates.

 

X24 & E24 College taster day postponed

Unfortunately due to circumstances beyond our control Doncaster College have taken the difficult decision to postpone XP & XP East’s taster day until the next academic year. This delay is due to an increase in Covid cases and acting on Local authority guidance. I know the students were looking forward to this opportunity however their safety is our first priority.

As Careers Lead for both schools I would like to take this opportunity to thank staff for their support and assure parents/carers that these opportunities and more are planned for  2021/22 as they head into year 11. We are working with local Further education providers and  businesses to create meaningful insights into their options for the next steps on their academic journey.
