Visual CV


This activity will be delivered in the Autumn Term. It is an opportunity for Year 9 students to spend a day at the University working with University staff and undergraduate students to create a Visual CV. The CV concentrates on four main areas; values and beliefs, team working skills, multiple intelligence skills and goal setting, specific to each individual pupil. Through a series of interactive activities based on these key areas, pupils will be encouraged to examine their personal skills and natural abilities. They will consider their future ambitions as a way of assisting them in making insightful decisions, particularly in their upcoming GCSE subject options. Lunch is provided for this event.
