Building My Skills

The "Building My Skills" is the Year 10 employability skills programme developed and managed by the ESH Group. Students complete five checkpoint tasks, each supported by a business contact session:

  • CheckPoint 1: My Pathway Poster
  • CheckPoint 2: Online Appearance
  • CheckPoint 3: Workplace Jargon
  • CheckPoint 4: CV and Covering Letter
  • CheckPoint 5: Preparing for Interview.

Students complete each checkpoint during tutorial time, with the support from tutors and their Head of Year. Students hand in completed checkpoints on or before the published deadline. Students who complete all five checkpoints have the opportunity to be selected to attend a mock interview with a panel of business representatives.

Several different businesses have completed the "business contact sessions" over the past few years, including: ESH Group, Sintons Law, Jewson, SAFC, Accenture, Barclays, Swinburn Maddison and George Washington Mecure Hotels. This year, representatives from DUO and NRG will also be taking part. We would like to sincerely thank everyone for their involvement.
