Raising the Bar, with ONE Haverhill’s help, are running a careers day at Castle Manor Academy in Haverhill on March 7 and are looking for some volunteers for the day.
The students are roughly a 50/50 mix of those leaving after A levels to find employment with the rest going on to university.
A variety of people from different careers are needed to discuss ‘how they’ve got to where they are today’ and to help with mock interviews.
Volunteers can be from any level within a company. They just need to be the type of person happy to talk about their experiences.
It’s also an ideal opportunity to have a look at the potential future workforce. If volunteers can make just one session that would be great, there is o requirement to commit to the whole day.
Sessions will take place during daytime hours and if you are interested please contact Kate Anstee at firstname.lastname@example.org for further details.
Raising the Bar is Suffolk’s response to tackling levels of education attainment in the county.
As a relevantly affluent county we should be doing better. Solving this problem is not something any one person or organisation can solve on its own - only by working together will we be successful.
The Raising the Bar mission is to ensure:
•Every child exceeds their potential
•Every schools exceeds its potential
•Every child is taught by a good or outstanding teacher
•Every child attends a good or outstanding school
•Every vulnerable child is supported swiftly and effectively
•Every child given the best preparation for life beyond school
