My Week of Work 2020 – Event
What is the programme about?
Work experience this year, has not been possible and so here is a programme of activities which link to the workplace to help you to still gain some of the key employability skills and knowledge you have missed out on.
This week we would like you to take part in a world of work insight week to begin to get you thinking about your future aspirations and post 16 choices. Every day you may take part in the range of 20 lessons available to you all week via Oak National Academy.
The lessons will support you to gain insight into the world of work through employer videos and resources. There will also be tasks set for you to complete each day to develop and showcase employability skills.
Each session is a PowerPoint that you access. It has information, videos and task and is narrated all the way through. There is a virtual mentor who will pop up at various points to keep checking with you. There are mini tasks where you will be asked to pause the session to check your understanding and complete something exciting and there are key tasks for you to complete each day.
