Following the success of WhoAsksUs at Holbrook Academy I have now worked with Paul Press, Offshoot Foundation on a similar project at Stoke High School with 20 Year 9 students. This project tackled:
The stresses of exam taking on students, teachers and parents and the resultant effect on students’ health and wellbeing and self confidence.
Career guidance and business opportunities – the students will identify local businesses to establish what relevant skills they expect young people to have in order to make them employable.
Further Education/Apprenticeships – the students will look at the benefits of continuing in education until they are 18. The discuss the benefits with employer and colleges.
