Fearnhill School Celebrates National Careers Week








Fearnhill School is Celebrating National Careers Week this week, 1st-6th March.

Please read the following as a guide to how National Careers Week can support your young person/people both now and in the future through the world of Careers Education. Explore the activities and resources available and open the doors to the amazing opportunities that lie ahead.

National Careers Week is celebrating its 10th Anniversary this year, from 1st- 6th March, a year when hope for the future and belief in the potential of careers is needed more than ever.  We recognise that a lot of young people and families are experiencing feelings of worry or uncertainty around future careers.  You and your family, like most of us, have perhaps wondered if career opportunities will be affected by the pandemic, and what that might mean for the future of young people.  We want to encourage families to have conversations about careers and the future, especially this year in these challenging times.  You can support young people to start exploring, spark their curiosity and build hope for their future by talking about careers during National Careers Week.

We have some resources to help.  These can be found on https://ncw2021.co.uk/welcome/start/-

  • Information on many careers from over 40 National organisations, including our supporters the Natwest Group and NHS Health Careers.
  • An online virtual careers fair https://ncw2021.co.uk/
  • A short ‘Believe’ film, created to support young people to imagine and believe in their potential.
  • Activities for both primary and secondary school students.
  • A short ‘Hope’ film with stress and wellbeing resources. This features young people talking about their hopes and anxieties for the future.
  • Wellbeing advice and practical tips on managing feelings of stress is provided by GP and broadcaster Dr Radha Modgil.
