University & Careers

Introduction

When students are considering their career options, they need accurate, comprehensive information. The Careers Department at The Lady Elizabeth School provides a programme of courses and activities which will enable them to make informed choices related to their further education and future employment. The department works in partnership with parents, the local community and industry specialists. The aim is to use a wide range of complementary workshops and seminars designed to make the students think independently and to develop their creativity. This builds confidence and self-esteem and extends their social skills.

Workshops and Activities

Support and guidance is provided to the students in a variety of ways, such as:

– Careers interviews – to give the student advice and help when trying to decide on future career choices
– Skills workshops – to increase the knowledge and intellectual development of the student, covering topics such as:

  • presentation skills
  • interview techniques
  • problem solving
  • teamwork
  • communication skills
  • time management

The Mentoring Programme for Year 7 students run by Year 13 students – incorporates teamwork, communication skills etc.

Careers Fair

LAUDE, The Lady Elizabeth Secondary School Annual Careers Fair is a wonderful opportunity for students to gain an insight into a career which they may be interested in. These afternoons are proving to be a huge success and are aimed primarily at students in Year 9 and 11, when important subject and career choices need to be made. It is also open to Year 12 and Year 13 students to attend, as they often find the delegates interesting and inspiring.

The Fair is designed to give students the opportunity to meet with professional people to discover more about many different careers.  They are able to get a first-hand account of a particular career and often a lot of important information is available for students to take away with them. Many of our delegates bring equipment and materials which are used in their profession and students can look and try this equipment to get a more practical insight into what a career may offer.

We have extended the invitation to parents to attend the event as we feel that it is just as important for parents to have the chance to meet with delegates from such a wide range of professions to discuss possible career choices for their children.

Work Observation Week

Work Observation Week provides an opportunity for Year 10 students to spend some time in a business, so that they can relate their school curriculum and qualifications to the skills and qualities that are required in the workplace. Students find either locally based work in a field of their interest or they travel further afield to other areas in Spain or throughout Europe and the UK. It is an invaluable experience and can help students to decide whether they will or won’t pursue a particular career.
