Video of the Week
Week beginning 13th September
For the benefit of our new Year 7 pupils, each week I will post a link to a quick video about a particular career. Some you will have heard of, many you will not even realise it’s an actual job! Hopefully they will inspire you to explore different pathways.
So to start us off – after a summer of Olympics and Paralympics – Sports Coach!
If you have any requests for videos, please let me know and I’ll see what I can do.
