Launceston College believes that encounters with employers and employees help inspire and inform students. Activities such as the ‘I Love My Job’ event for Year 7 and speed networking for older year groups, where volunteers talk about their job role to groups of students, are organised to ensure that students have at least one meaningful encounter with an employer/employee each school year. In reality, students have more than this, as organised whole year and targeted events are complemented by subject teachers organising visits and inviting business volunteers into their lessons. Employers can also play an important role in supporting students develop employability skills through activities such as CV writing workshops and mock interviews. In addition, the college is always looking for new work experience and work shadowing opportunities for students. If you would like to support the college by getting involved in any of the activities mentioned above, please get in contact with Mr Adams or Mrs Acaster.
