As part of our whole school careers programme we are very lucky to be partnered with Communities 1st, an organisation developing, connecting and supporting voluntary and community organisations in a number of districts including Hertsmere.
Through this partnership we were delighted to welcome twenty local volunteers representing a wide range of professions and industries to work with small groups of our Year 10 students. Working in these groups, each student took part in an individual interview and was given feedback both from the interviewer and the other students in the group.
The event was a huge success and the feedback from the volunteers was extremely positive. Many of them commented how engaged and confident our students were. We are so thankful to all the volunteers who gave up their mornings to spend time with our students and we hope to run the event again in future years.
