Volunteering opportunity with the Northumberland Education Business Partnership

Northumberland EBPA fantastic volunteering opportunity has arisen with the Northumberland Education Business Partnership to help deliver a 'Career Speed Dating' event for students at  Monkseaton Middle school on the morning of Friday 20th May.

'Career Speed Dating' allows the young people to practice their listening skills, note taking and builds their confidence in speaking to adults.

The aims of this event are to:-

  • raise job awareness
  • find out about progression pathways
  • routes into the World of Work
  • what you like about your job role and what you do not
  •  help the children when choosing their GCSE options

This event is designed to be fast paced to help the students stay focused. It is a fun way to collect information which will help them choose the correct GCSE courses.
