Notes from meeting, Wed 16th October 2013

Schools work — Joe emailed all secondary schools in Southampton with an offer of speakers / presenters. We received 3 very positive responses with invitations to attend careers events. The challenge with covering these events is that they are mostly during the working day. St George’s School — invitation to talk to Yr10 students in assembly on a Wednesday morning 8-40 to 9am, after half term. Upper Shirley High — careers fair on Thursday, 24th October (2:30—6:30) open to our Yr 11, 10 and 9 students. Also looking for a guest speaker for Yr 7 students on Thursday 5th December. This would be the ideal opportunity for male workers to address a whole year group to speak about their career path – this is 45 minute slot so an interactive session would be ideal. Sholing Technology College — Yr11 conference on Friday 6th December. An opportunity for someone to come along to college to support our careers education activities. The activities are planned and resourced by the college. External volunteers lead a group of students through the activities, giving their experiences and knowledge gradually throughout the day as part of the set programme. It was agreed that we are not in a position to cover the USH careers fair on 24th October but we are keen to support the other events. Joe will confirm this back to the schools. Action: to be able to cover careers events, we will need some printed handouts and ideally a pull-up banner. Action: Looking for volunteers willing and able to help with 1 or more events. Paint Pots has 3 men available. David is comfortable with talking to whole year groups! Membership— David emailed all settings in the area again with the next meeting poster. He will continue to do so.
