World at Workday

For World at Workday, we spent the afternoon at Albion High School in Salford, with their year 9 pupils.

The session was aimed at boosting pupil’s exposure of the working world.

World of Workday is a great way for businesses came together to talk to students about different jobs, roles, industries. Students visited each representative to find out about job opportunities and career options. This activity was delivered to the entire year group and allowed all students to get a flavour of what the world of work is like, just in time for their GCSE options.

The pupils visited the Connolly station and gained an insight into the world of construction and the different roles available, including Joinery, Estimator and Customer and Social Value Roles. It was a great opportunity to talk about our real-life stories, career paths into the wonderful world of construction that is very inclusive and open to everyone.

Quote from Lewis Wild (Assistant Principal for Personal Development)
“The year 9 pupils of The Albion Academy would like to thank the volunteers from Connolly Ltd who gave up their time to promote our World at Workday. The team led an engaging session which explored the world of construction was highly valued by our pupils. We hope to see you again next year”.

Quote from Ruby Mimmack (Salford Foundation)
“I would just like to extend a thank you from last week’s activity. It was a great success, and the students had a great experience and gave great feedback. The teachers were happy with you all! So, thanks again!
