Year 8

If you teach Year 8 or are a head of Year 8, here are a few ideas to help you, particularly if your students choose their options in Year 8. Don’t forget the best events need around a 6 /8 weeks lead time if volunteers are to be invited successfully.

We recommend that in year 8 it is best to expose students to the widest range of careers possible so they can narrow down their interests as they go through school.  Volunteers can bring all of these activities to life.

  • Speed networking
  • Assemblies
  • Drop down career days
  • Enterprise events
  • Find language volunteers to enliven European Day of Languages in September
  • Search our database to find volunteers who can support Black History Month
  • Subject talks (how I use (name of subject) in my job
  • Apprentice talks
