Helping to inform and inspire young people

Careers Guidance Booklet

Latest

Design stage begins!

Project Description

The sessions take place in Leytonstone school and New City College's Hackney campus:

  • Session 1: Understanding the Brief. Introductory session to introduce the brief, understand how the individual relates to the brief, what they know already, activities to ideate content.
  • Session 2: Research. Students research Apprenticeship Providers, Colleges and 6th Forms by searching online and then design a promotional poster which they use to “sell” their subject to their peers.
  • Session 3: Employer panel ‘Getting to know what’s out there’. Session immersing themselves into the world of digital and creative industries by spending time with industry professionals. Each student will be given a template to guide them to make notes and become the basis of their short blog.
  • Session 4: Students upload what they’ve researched onto a landing page, for people to view in the future. Each student then participates in a voxpop.
  • Session 5: All content is then uploaded to landing page. Collect debrief feedback for wider debrief and measure impact. Make any pivots ready for next school

The employer will then collate all the information so there's an online verison of the guide.  Students at Blue Orange Shoreditch, part of New City College, will design the booklet so we have a printed version to hand out to people.
